Tooth Extractions

A tooth extraction is a common general dentistry service where a tooth is removed from the mouth.

Tooth extractions may become necessary for several reasons including severe tooth decay or infection, tooth damage due to breakage, severe gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth, to make space for orthodontic treatment, or during childhood, when baby teeth don’t fall out quickly enough to create space for emerging adult teeth.

Tooth Extractions Can Be Simple or Surgical

Simple tooth extractions are performed on teeth that are visible and easily accessible in the mouth. Simple tooth extractions do not require an incision and are performed under local anesthetic.

  • Cracked or fractured teeth
  • Entangled or multiple curved roots
  • Impacted teeth
  • Wisdom teeth

  • Teeth or bone infections
