Dentists try their best to preserve your natural teeth using every treatment method possible. However, in some instances, the only option may be to extract your tooth.
A dental extraction is a method of removing a broken or decayed tooth entirely from its socket. Sometimes, a tooth is also extracted to make space for the movement of the teeth before installing braces, or when a person suffers from impacted wisdom teeth.
When is an extraction required?
You might need to undergo extractions in the following cases:
- Broken/Fractured teeth
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Orthodontic treatment
- Baby teeth
