Saving smiles is our number one priority. However, that sometimes requires removing a tooth. A tooth extraction is our last option but it can truly make a difference in restoring you to good health and optimal function.
A tooth extraction is the formal removal of a tooth from its socket performed by a licensed dentist. It is the last resort when a tooth is irreparable that is causing oral health problems. The goal of extracting the tooth is to alleviate pain and restore good overall health.
Take a second to think about what your teeth do for you on a daily basis. You use your teeth to chew and grind the food you eat, it enables you to talk properly and it completes your smile.
However, infection and damage to your teeth happen. As bacteria builds up on your teeth, they will weaken and become susceptible to severe damage. Sometimes infections persist, causing irreparable damage. This creates the need for a tooth extraction. There are also other forms of extractions, like wisdom tooth removal, which allows for more room in your jaw, creating a healthier bite.
