Dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone, which may be required in different circumstances. If your tooth is broken or compromised by decay, your dentist will first likely correct issues through root canal therapy, placement of dental crowns, or other treatment as needed. Sometimes, though, there's too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, making extraction necessary.
Extraction may also be needed if your third molars (wisdom teeth) are impacting the health and alignment of permanent teeth.
Removing teeth, as needed, can help patients maintain their oral health by:
- Preventing spread of tooth infection
- Preserving current teeth alignment
- Replacing weak, damaged teeth with functional prosthetics
