Tooth Extraction

Good oral hygiene is a must. The loss of a single tooth can have major impact on overall oral health and appearance. Although dentists will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, there are still some occasions when a tooth needs to be removed. A tooth may need to be extracted if the following occurs:

  • • Severe decay
  • • Advanced gum disease
  • • Infection or abscess
  • • Orthodontic correction
  • • Malpositioned teeth
  • • Fractured teeth or roots
  • • Impacted teeth

The dentist may suggest an extraction after careful examination and treatment. X-rays are used to understand the shape and position of the tooth and surrounding bone before extracting the tooth. Based on the degree of difficulty, a dentist may refer you to an oral surgeon to ensure the best experience for you..
