Dental extractions can be performed by a general dentist or an oral surgeon. While many individuals undergo wisdom teeth removal during their teens or adulthood, there are various other reasons why a tooth may need extraction.
If a tooth is severely decayed, has an abscess, or is fractured to an extent where it cannot be salvaged, extraction may be the necessary course of action.
Additionally, periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, can significantly contribute to the need for tooth extraction. When gums are not healthy, they can develop ‘pockets’ that create a gap between the tooth and gum. This can lead to the accumulation of food particles in these spaces, causing bone loss over time and tooth mobility. In cases of severe bone loss and mobility, extraction may become the only viable option to maintain oral health.
