Nowadays, tooth extraction is the last resort that means, if we can not save a tooth by treatment then, we opt for extraction. Extraction can also be done if there is improper eruption, especially in case of Wisdom tooth i.e. Third molar.
Wisdom tooth may need not be replaced but yes, all other missing tooth or teeth should be replaced for proper functional and aesthetic reasons.
There are different ways a missing tooth or teeth can be replaced. Your friendly dentist would be the best person to guide you with this regards.
Tooth extraction is necessary if it is beyond repair, meaning a mobile tooth, tooth with a very large non healing cyst beneath it, unfavorable fracture of a tooth, uncontrollable pus discharge around a tooth/gum. Usually wisdom teeth, the last no 8 teeth in all the arches are never replaced as they are mostly non functional. Rest all other functional teeth require earlier replacement.
Tooth extraction is necessary when its impossible to restore to its natural function. If you do not get the tooth replaced then later on after some years you sure to get occlusion problems in your teeth as they tend to shift into empty spaces. Exceptions are third molars or wisdom tooth. No need to replace them. Good luck.
Tooth extraction is necessary when the tooth is grossly decayed ie; no more crown structure is avaklable as it may lead to infections in the future. And also you always have to replace tooth in the missing regions so as to prevent the outgrowth of your respective opposing tooth.
Tooth extraction is mandatory in case there is bone discrepancies around the tooth. When bone around the tooth is not at all support the tooth or tooth is not saved by any other treatment. Yes filling of gap is very much necessary because that effects your other teeth also.
Highly carious & mobile tooth can be extracted. It is necessary to replace the extracted tooth, otherwise your opposing & the adjacent tooth drifts to fill the gaps. Try to avoid extraction because so many options are there nowadays to save your tooth.
