When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

There are many instances when a tooth may need to be extracted, however, the most common reason is due to severe and irreparable damage caused by decay or physical trauma. In other cases, we might recommend tooth removal if it is impacted, which is when it becomes trapped underneath existing teeth as it erupts—a problem common with wisdom teeth. Other reasons include:

  • Ensuring there’s adequate room for a dental restoration, such as a denture
  • A baby tooth that’s refusing to fall out on its own
  • Making room for orthodontic treatment
  • Preventing the spread of oral infections
