Tooth extraction refers to the removal of one or more teeth from the mouth. Teeth affected by tooth decay or periodontal disease to the extent that they cannot be treated with a dental filling, crown, or root canal work are extracted.
Other common reasons include:-
- Injury or trauma that has led to a broken or damaged tooth that is beyond repair
- A dental or gum abscess that has weakened the root of the tooth
- Malocclusion or crowding of teeth
- Impaction of teeth (most commonly of the wisdom teeth) that has led to the failure of the tooth to emerge from the gum
We ensure all extractions done at our clinic are painless!
