Dental Extractions

Dental extractions are no longer an acceptable substitute to restoring decayed or damaged teeth. However dental extractions are still performed in certain cases such as-

  • When a tooth can no longer be saved because of extensive decay below the level of the bone
  • Teeth with fractured roots
  • Teeth associated with severe bone loss
  • For facilitating orthodontic treatment
  • Impacted wisdom teeth, when there is not enough room in the jaw for the wisdom teeth to erupt, and such teeth are causing discomfort to the patient or are damaging the adjacent teeth
