What is a Tooth Extraction?
A tooth extraction is the process of surgically removing a tooth. Tooth extractions will only be performed in cases where the damaged tooth is threatening the health of your other teeth and mouth.
Wisdom teeth can sometimes cause tooth crowding or may grow at an angle. They may also only partially emerge or become impacted. These situations can lead to discomfort or pain, making extraction the best course of action to maintain a healthy mouth.
In most cases, your dentist will work to save a tooth whenever possible. However, there are circumstances, such as significant injury, gum disease, or excessive decay, which can make extraction necessary.
Your dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you, which may include dental bridges, dental crowns, and dentures. Other options that may be considered are dental implants and bone grafting.
