Tooth Extraction

In most cases, we’ll work our hardest to ensure patients keep their healthy, natural teeth, but there are some situations where extraction is unavoidable. The most common reasons for tooth extraction include:

  • Severe decay that may affect surrounding teeth
  • In preparation for orthodontic treatment due to crowding
  • Facial trauma that leads to significant fractures, cracks, or breaks
  • Infection that spreads to the gums, leading to abscess or other advanced concerns
  • The presence of third molars (wisdom teeth), which often need to be removed because of late eruption and lack of space in the jaw
