Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction
A tooth extraction is performed for a variety of reasons including tooth decay, injury, and for orthodontic treatment. Extractions are a relatively common procedure and are performed in one office visit. The most common reason for removal of a tooth is severe decay or breakage of a tooth.

Teeth may also be removed due to:
  • Severe tooth decay or infection
  • Extra teeth that are blocking other teeth from growing in
  • Severe gum disease
  • To make room for orthodontic or cosmetic dentistry treatment
  • The tooth can not be restored endodontically
  • Fractured tooth
  • To make room for a dental crown, bridge, or dental implant

Regardless of the reasons a tooth must be pulled, a tooth extraction is usually reserved only for cases in which no other treatment option will cure the infection or problem.
