While our main priority is to always help restore, save, and repair your natural teeth, sometimes tooth extraction is unavoidable.
Reasons for Extractions
While your wisdom teeth are the most likely ones to require extraction, other teeth may also need to be extracted for a variety of reasons. Those reasons include:
- Impacted tooth – your tooth is trapped beneath bone or gums, which prohibits it from emerging properly.
- Crowding or smallmouth – emerging teeth may cause other teeth to shift or crack due to lack of space.
- Decay or infection – when a tooth is affected by extreme decay or infection and can’t be corrected with a filling or root canal therapy, it may require extraction.
