When Are Tooth Extractions Needed?

Below are a few situations that may warrant a tooth extraction:

  • An impacted wisdom tooth can shift the surrounding teeth and lead to more severe issues, such as infection.
  • A severely decayed tooth that was left without treatment, can eventually lead to needing a tooth extraction.
  • Broken or cracked tooth which is beyond repair. If a tooth is severely broken or cracked from trauma or an accident, then your dentist may first decide to try a restoration that will provide support. However, if this does not work, then an extraction will be needed.

What Is Involved in a Tooth Extraction?

Generally, a tooth extraction will involve a surgical procedure in a safe environment. Prior to extracting your tooth, the doctor will provide you with the needed anaesthetic option to best support you while helping to avoid discomfort and pain throughout the procedure. This can also be used to allow for a less anxious procedure. After the area is numbed and the anaesthetic is applied, your dentist will begin the extraction process. This may involve creating an opening in the gums to break the tooth free. The healing process may take some time after the treatment is over and your doctor can prescribe any needed medications to control pain during this period.
