Extractions/Tooth Removal

A tooth extraction is the process of removing a tooth from the mouth. There are a number of different reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted. In most cases, teeth have to be removed because they too badly damaged or decayed to be repaired.

Your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend an extraction for one of the following reasons:

  • Injuries and accidents
  • Periodontal disease
  • Overcrowding
  • Wisdom teeth
