Can extraction of teeth lead to brain damage?
Q: I have three decayed teeth and a dentist advised me to get them extracted. The problem is, the one in the corner most of my upper jaw is still very strong and it will not be easy to pull out. Since it is in the upper jaw and cornermost part, my wife and some of my friends told me that it is very risky where it might effect the brain. Please advise.
A:Extraction of upper teeth do not affect brain or vision. These are only myths. With right technique, any tooth can be simply extracted and does not matter whether tooth is firm or mobile. Rest assured, believe in your dentist and leave it to him.
