One of the most common dental procedures, a tooth extraction can eliminate bacteria and improve your overall oral health. A tooth extraction is a dental procedure during which your tooth is completely removed from its socket.
When extraction is needed?
Always we would prefer to save natural teeth whenever possible. But sometimes, other restorative methods — such as dental fillings or dental crowns — aren’t enough. If your tooth has been badly damaged past the point of repair, then removal may be necessary. We may recommend tooth extraction if you have:
- Severe tooth decay (cavities).
- A fractured tooth.
- An impacted tooth.
- Crowded teeth.
- Severe gum disease.
- Tooth luxation or other dental injuries.
