Is Tooth Extraction Harmful In The Long Run

Tooth extraction is carried out for several reasons. A too decayed tooth or tooth altered from trauma may be too damaged, that only extraction can solve the issue. While many people may fear extraction, it is safe and has very few risks associated with it.

Before stating these risks, we shall first consider some reasons for tooth extraction.


Teeth can be extracted if the mouth is overcrowded and needs to be set up for orthodontia. If the teeth are more significant than the mouth, it may be difficult to align them properly, and extraction would be the best option. This is also true for severely impacted tooth conditions.

If cavity or damage extends to the center of a tooth (pulp), then bacterial present in the mouth can slip in and cause infection. To correct through root canal therapy (RCT), but if the case is extremely severe and canal therapy does not work, then a tooth extraction would be the best option.

To remove infected teeth that have affected the pulp, leading to root canal complications, you may require the service of an endodontist. You can contact or book an appointment with an endodontist in Boca Raton for a complication-free procedure.


Teeth extraction is relatively safe, and there are no long-term complications to be expected. However, it is possible to experience some risks after a procedure, and this includes continuous bleeding, fever and chills, vomiting, redness and swelling at affected areas, and many more.

While these complications are common after-effects of an extraction, it is possible to reduce their chances by visiting an experienced dentist for the procedure.
