Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: If you’re suffering from a dental infection, you will definitely require a tooth extraction to resolve the problem.
  2. True or False: When your tooth is severely damaged and the usual restorative treatments we consider will not save the tooth, we will suggest the removal of your tooth.
  3. True or False: No matter the health or positioning of your wisdom teeth, we are most certainly going to recommend their removal.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. Not necessarily. A severe infection will certainly lead you to a need for a tooth extraction because there will be no other option. However, if the infection is not severe, we may be able to fix the problem with a root canal treatment and likely a crown.
  2. True. When you’re missing too much of your tooth tissue or experience a severe crack, we will generally need to remove the tooth to prevent complications.
  3. False. We only need to remove wisdom teeth with extractions if they are causing problems. In some cases, they may grow in without any issues or you may not develop any at all!
