Why Might a Tooth Need to be Extracted?

Tooth ExtractionThere are times when a dentist may be required to extract one or more teeth. Although this is a very common procedure, you could still be curious to learn about some of the main reasons why it is performed. 

Let us take a quick look at three situations which might ultimately warrant a tooth extraction. 

  • The tooth may be suffering from a severe amount of decay.
  • Trauma such as a broken tooth or a sudden impact could require an extraction.
  • One tooth may be removed to provide more room for adjacent teeth.

“Tooth extraction is when a tooth is removed from it’s place in the gum & bone of your jaw.”
