If Dr. Neslund determines that you need teeth extracted, it’s typically because you have erupting wisdom teeth that cannot be accommodated. However, there are many cases where teeth are so badly damaged, either by decay or forced trauma, that keeping them in your mouth can actually harm your neighboring teeth, gums and other oral structures. In other cases, too many erupting teeth can lead to overcrowding, which can increase your risk for an oral infection and make your bite uneven.
