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, there's too much damage for the tooth to be repaired or the tooth is suffering from advanced tooth or gum infection at this point the tooth may need to be extracted. A very loose permanent tooth might also require extraction if it cannot be restored.
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
