is the complete removal of a primary or a permanent
tooth. An Extraction can be surgical or non-surgical.
This depends on the difficulty of the extraction and
whether or not the tooth is impacted or erupted, and
whether it has straight or curved roots.
No one looks forward to an extraction, but modern
anesthesia will help keep you comfortable throughout
Reasons for an extraction are:
- Advanced Gum Disease.
This is the #1 reason adults lose their teeth!
- An abscessed tooth that
cannot be saved.
- A tooth with decay too
deep to save the tooth.
- A tooth that has broken
at the gum line and cannot be saved.
- Impacted tooth (typically
a "Wisdom Tooth")
Nothing is better than a healthy set of
teeth, and many advances in dentistry allow us to save
teeth that we could not previously, but sometimes an
extraction is necessary.
When an extraction is performed, it is
important to put something in the place of the missing
tooth or teeth. If the space is just left open, your
teeth will shift and cause many unnecessary complications.
An extracted tooth may be replaced by a temporary
or permanent bridge, an implant,
or by a partial or complete denture.
