A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. If your tooth is broken or damaged by decay your dentist will likely try to fix it with a filling, root canal therapy, a crown, or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there's too much damage for the tooth to be repaired and the tooth needs to be extracted. A very loose permanent tooth might also require extraction if it canâ€™t be saved through the use of a bone grafting procedure.
Some of the reasons tooth extraction may be required include:
- Severe gum disease (periodontal disease)
- Advanced tooth decay
- An irreparable broken tooth
- Crowded teeth
- Wisdom teeth removal
