If you are experiencing extreme sensitivity or are suffering from advanced periodontal disease, you may be required to have a tooth extracted. With a simple extraction, the dentist can safely remove the affected tooth without needing major surgery.
There are numerous situations in which a simple extraction can help alleviate pain or prepare you for another cosmetic or restorative procedure.
Some common reasons for extraction include:
❖ Advanced periodontal disease that has loosened the tooth roots
❖ Extra teeth or baby teeth that impede adult teeth
❖ Preparing a patient for orthodontic treatment
❖ Removing a fractured or malformed tooth
❖ Severe tooth decay which cannot be remedied with root canal therapy
We may work with a specialist to:
❖ Extract impacted teeth that can no longer be restored
❖ Replace lost teeth
❖ Correct jaw alignment
❖ Remove and biopsy any oral lesions or tumors
