When you need to have a tooth extracted, it means that it must be removed from your mouth entirely. For some reason, this tooth is beyond salvaging, and to restore your mouth to good working order, it would need to be removed from the area before it can cause further damage to occur. Often, the tooth that requires extraction may be painful, and removing the problem can get you back to eating and drinking your favorite things.
There are a wide variety of reasons that a tooth may need to be extracted; including excessive decay or damage. This means that the tooth cannot be repaired with a crown or filling. An extraction may also be necessary for some orthodontic procedures. One of the most common tooth extraction procedures involves your wisdom teeth. These teeth can cause a wide array of problems, and an extraction is sometimes necessary to protect the safety and health of the rest of your teeth.
