Tooth Extractions

What are Tooth Extractions?

Tooth extraction is the process of removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. It’s typically required when a tooth is too damaged to be saved, whether due to severe decay, gum disease, or trauma. Extractions can also be necessary for orthodontic reasons, such as to alleviate overcrowding in the mouth.
