What is tooth extraction?
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. Our dentist at Shaia Dental Care may recommend tooth extraction in order to restore the health of your smile if the tooth cannot be restored through a dental crown, filling, or other type of dental restoration.
Do I need a tooth extraction?
Dr. Anthony Shaia strives to avoid tooth extraction whenever possible. In certain cases, however, tooth extraction may be the best possible option for improving your oral health. We may recommend tooth extraction if:
- There is not enough room for all of the teeth in the mouth
- A tooth is so severely damaged or decayed that an effective restoration is not possible
- Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or supporting bone structure
- A tooth has become impacted (stuck in the jawbone and gum tissue)
