A tooth may need to be extracted if there are no other methods available to save the tooth. The tooth may have broken in a way that is unrestorable, have extensive decay beyond repair or be the result of trauma or gum disease. If a tooth extraction is required, it is important to ensure this is done as soon as possible to prevent infection and further complications.
A tooth extraction may also be required due to the following reasons;
– Orthodontic treatment in order to make space for teeth to be brought in to alignment
– Wisdom teeth that recurrently become infected or have restricted space
