Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview
Tooth extraction may be a necessary procedure for several different reasons. Tooth extractions are only recommended when necessary for restoring oral health.
A tooth extraction will be necessary in cases where trauma or decay has damaged the tooth beyond repair. If the root has died, or the tooth cannot be stabilized with restorative dentistry a tooth extraction can help to prevent secondary dental health concerns from developing.
Visiting the dentist at least two times every year can help prevent the need for tooth extraction due to decay or infection. Routine dental health exams allow your dentist to diagnosis developing dental concerns early on allowing for conservative treatment.

Overcrowded or impacted teeth may also need to be extracted. Wisdom teeth are most commonly removed during a patient’s late teens or early twenties. The last molars to emerge from the gum line, wisdom teeth can force the bite to shift causing teeth to become crooked and uncomfortable.
