Minor extractions

A tooth extraction is a routine procedure that helps prevent more serious dental problems from occurring. The most common tooth extractions are the removal of wisdom teeth. There are many other reasons that a dentist might have to extract a tooth.

Your dentist may remove a tooth if it is coming in at an angle, threatening the position of other healthy teeth or contributing to overcrowding in the mouth. Some other examples are a broken tooth that may also need to be removed, as well as teeth with significant tooth decay that cannot be treated by a root canal. Patients with advanced gum disease may be considered for an extraction as well.

While it is your dentist’s goal to do everything they can to save your teeth, in the end, removing a potentially harmful tooth can spare you time, money and discomfort.
