Tooth Removal Reasons and Options

A dental extraction is the removal of the tooth from the socket in the bone.  There are a number of reasons for dental extractions:

  1. a tooth is too badly decayed and cannot be restored
  2. the tooth has been injured
  3. orthodontic purposes
  4. to remove supernumerary (extra) teeth
  5. baby teeth are not exfoliating
  6. problematic wisdom teeth
  7. the tooth is loose because of periodontal disease

Dental Extractions and Post-Care Options

Once the decision has been made to extract the tooth, one of our dentists will discuss options to replace that tooth. The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, jaw joint and shifting teeth. These complications can have a major impact on your dental health. Dental extractions are performed with the utmost care to minimize any subsequent issues. Our team ensures you’re fully informed about the process and post-extraction care to support your dental health and comfort.
