What Is a Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extractions involve fully removing your natural teeth. They are done as a way to improve or maintain optimal oral health. Some extractions are done because a tooth is painful, problematic, or unable to be treated any other way. Other extractions are performed in an attempt to prevent future problems from occurring, as you’ll find with wisdom teeth. We provide extractions in a relaxed, comfortable, and easy manner in our office.
Why Is a Tooth Extraction Needed?
Extractions are always done as a way to help improve and maintain your dental health. We will always offer or attempt other treatments unless asked specifically to remove a problematic tooth. Some of the reasons an extraction is necessary include:
- Wisdom teeth
- Severe decay
- Severe cracks and fractures
- Loose teeth
- You want to avoid more complicated treatment
- Stubborn baby teeth
