When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

The decision to remove a tooth is never one to be made lightly. After all, in many cases, it may be possible to save the tooth in question with the right restorative treatment. We will always consider the specifics of your situation very carefully, and we will only recommend a tooth extraction if other solutions have already been ruled out.

You may need a tooth extraction performed if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have severe tooth decay that is threatening to affect your other teeth.
  • Your tooth has been badly damaged in an accident.
  • You are unable to have orthodontic treatment performed because your teeth are crowded too closely together.
  • You are planning to get dentures but some of the teeth being replaced are still in your mouth.
  • You have suffered from extensive bone loss in the jaw due to gum disease (which can cause your teeth to come loose).
