Why Tooth Extractions Are Necessary

There are several reasons a tooth extraction may be necessary. Severe decay or irreparable damage, an infection or abscess, or fractured or impacted teeth are all common reasons for tooth extraction. Orthodontic correction, inability to lose baby teeth on your own, and advanced periodontal disease can also result in tooth extraction.

The Tooth Extraction Process

Teeth can be removed by numbing the surrounding area and loosening the tooth with an elevator clasping tool; once the tooth is removed, your dentist will stitch up the hole with 1-2 stitches. Certain extractions may require a small incision in your gums to remove the tooth.

The Benefits of Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction offers several benefits for patients. By removing problem teeth, you can avoid the risk of future infections or oral health issues. If you remove a tooth or teeth to make room for a denture or dental implant procedure, or for orthodontic reasons, you will receive the added benefit of a beautiful smile.
