Tooth extraction is a restorative dental procedure that removes the tooth from its socket in the bone. Pure Dental takes every precaution to ensure that our patients’ extraction process are as painless and pleasant as possible.
Why Tooth Extractions?
If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, our dentists will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there may have been too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. This is the most common reason for extracting a tooth.
Other Reasons for Extractions:
- Wisdom Teeth Removal, or third molars, are often extracted either before or after they come in. typically during the late teens or early 20’s. These teeth often get stuck in the jaw (impacted) and do not grown in properly. They need to be removed if they are decayed or cause pain. Some wisdom teeth are blocked by other teeth or may not have enough room to come in completely. This can irritate the gum, causing pain and swelling.
- People getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place.
