Tooth extraction is one of the most commonly used treatments for dental caries.
It’s widely used in both the developed and developing world and is the most widely used treatment for caries in developed and emerging countries.
Tooth extractions are a relatively new and potentially promising treatment.
Currently there are approximately 1.2 million teeth in the United States alone, but researchers estimate that less than 1% of the population has a healthy tooth.
Dentists say that many patients with tooth caries have had some type of tooth loss.
According to the American Dental Association, there are about 4,300 million tooth loss cases in the US.
In a study published in the journal Science, researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University at Buffalo, and the University College London and the Department of Surgery at Queen Mary University of London, investigated the effectiveness of tooth extraction for restoring oral health.
Researchers enrolled 45 patients with untreated dental carious lesions, 20 patients with dental plaque disease and 20 healthy adults.
The subjects were treated with either tooth extraction or mouthwash and their dental cariocutaneous lesions were removed.
Each patient received a placebo and was given oral medications to reduce inflammation.
After a median of 12 weeks, the patients’ dental carias were significantly lessened.
Tooth extraction was also found to reduce plaque formation and reduce the number of cavities.
In the future, researchers plan to examine whether or not tooth extractions can treat other types of caries, such as inflammatory and dental caried conditions.
