Does anyone have any experience in dentistry? I have a question.

DH is deployed, on a ship. He had a dental check up. Dentist pulled a tooth because the dentist said it was causing him to bite his cheek and it wasn't touching the molar below it.



Is this truly a valid reason to pull a perfectly good, healthy tooth?



DH has never experienced any cheek biting, and no other dentist has told him he needs to or should get this tooth pulled.

That's what I thought, also. I feel so badly for him. His teeth are really healthy. He brushes and flosses 2-3 times a day.
