A tooth extraction is removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. Removal of a tooth is sometimes necessary due to the condition of the tooth. Sometimes the teeth become so damaged that an extraction is the only option for restoring oral health. Fortunately, there are treatment options available to replace missing teeth.

Reasons tooth extractions may be necessary:

Decay has reached the pulp
An abscess present around the tooth
Trauma or injury
Boneloss around the tooth due to gum disease
A crack in the tooth
Minimal tooth structure is present
Wisdom teeth which are in a less than ideal position
oral surgery

Before removing the tooth, the dentist will review your medical history and take the appropriate x-rays. This information assists the dentist in determining the best way to remove the tooth or if a referral to an oral surgeon is indicated.
