Although most people only have one set of permanent adult teeth to last their entire life, sometimes a tooth extraction, or a few, is necessary to preserve the long-term health of your teeth.

Some typical reasons for teeth extractions include:

  • A crowded mouth (extraction of wisdom teeth)
  • Severe tooth infection
  • Irreversible trauma or fractured tooth

For cosmetic purposes, many patients who undergo orthodontic treatment to realign his or her teeth may have to extract a few teeth to create space for realignment.

Although tooth extractions are commonly heard of in dental offices, it is typically regarded as the last resort for any treatment plan. A tooth extraction is commonly performed when a tooth has been damaged, fractured, or decayed beyond repair.

Our office provides our patients with the most comfortable and painless experience with dental extractions. Post-operational care and instructions are then provided to the patients for a quality and timely recovery.
