Tooth extraction is the dental procedure of safely and gently removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This treatment is performed for various reasons, including:

  • Severe tooth decay that cannot be treated with a filling or crown
  • Advanced gum disease that has loosened the tooth’s foundation
  • Impacted wisdom teeth causing pain or infection
  • Preparation for orthodontic treatment or dentures
  • Removal of damaged or non-restorable teeth
You may require a tooth extraction if you:

  • Experience severe tooth pain or discomfort
  • Have a tooth with extensive damage or decay
  • Are undergoing orthodontic treatment
  • Have impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth
  • Need to prevent the spread of infection or complications
Opting for tooth extraction offers several important benefits:

  • Relief from tooth pain and discomfort
