Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. Our Practice is very conservative. Therefore, an extraction will be recommended in certain cases:
- The tooth is extremely decayed, and it is not savable
- The tooth is broken and the longevity of the tooth is questionable
- Orthodontic procedures when the orthodontist determines that a tooth/teeth needs to be extracted to create space for the remaining teeth
- Wisdom teeth are extracted before or after they came in. Usually this procedure is performed by an oral surgeon.
