Common Reasons for Tooth Extraction
- The tooth is badly infected, and the damage is so severe that root canal therapy isn’t enough to salvage it.
- The tooth has been badly broken in a way that prevents us from restoring it. (For example, we cannot place a crown on a tooth that has broken off below the gum line.)
- You need an orthodontic treatment, but your teeth are too crowded together for the necessary adjustments to take place.
- You have a wisdom tooth that cannot erupt safely.
How Tooth Extractions Work
A tooth extraction might be performed one of two different ways. A simple extraction is done if the tooth has fully erupted and is visible in your mouth; all we need to do is loosen it with an instrument called an elevator before removing it. Surgical extractions are usually reserved for teeth that are impacted (trapped under the gums). Gum tissue (and possibly some bone) is removed, and the tooth might be divided into sections so that we can safely extract it.
