Extractions for Dentures
The removal of multiple diseased teeth is almost always accompanied by a better state of general health for the patient. Our body’s immune system spends a great deal of energy on “walling off” sources of chronic infection such as decayed and diseased teeth. Therefore upon removal of these sources of chronic infection, the body now has more energy and resources to perform other needed tasks, such as controlling blood pressure and blood sugar. We often see an improvement in energy with less daily fatigue. Most of the other organ systems in the body get a boost after the removal of multiple decayed and diseased teeth.
Please understand that the removal of teeth and replacement with dentures should not always be considered “the last resort” for all patients. The removal of teeth in the preparation for dentures for one patient may be the treatment of choice; whereas for another patient alternative dental procedures, such as dental implants may be the right thing to do. Although this is a personal decision, it is recommended that it be made with the proper information. An informed decision is always best.
