There are three common reasons for a tooth to need an extraction: infection, decay, and wisdom teeth. If a tooth is badly infected or decayed it is sometimes non-restorable and it may be better to completely remove it to ease pain.
Wisdom teeth are commonly removed to prevent overcrowding in your mouth. Many people’s wisdom teeth may grow sideways into their mouth instead of erupting through the gum. Besides being painful, this can damage the root of nearby teeth and cause other teeth to shift and lead to hard-to-reach spots to clean, decay, and a crooked bite. Wisdom teeth are commonly removed preventatively, but we will evaluate each person’s mouth individually.
