When tooth extraction is needed

Generally, we recommend treatments that will save teeth, but when a tooth is so damaged that it cannot be saved, or if it will help with alignment or other complications, extraction is the best choice.

Extraction might be best for:

  •      Teeth that are fractured below the gumline
  •     Severe tooth decay
  •     Advanced periodontal disease
  •     Primary teeth that are too crowded or not falling out properly
  •     An impacted wisdom tooth
  •     Allowing for adequate room in the dentition for orthodontics
