What is a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in your mouth.

Why would I need a Tooth Extraction?

There are multiple reasons why your dentist may perform a tooth extraction. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Your wisdom teeth may be impacted and causing you discomfort and pain
  • Baby teeth sometimes don’t fall out in time to allow the permanent teeth to come in causing your teeth to shift
  • Teeth may be extracted from someone getting braces to create room for the teeth to shift in the correct position
  • Infected teeth due to tooth decay may be causing other health issues
  • Damaged or broken teeth may have too much damage to be repaired
  • A very loose tooth may also require extraction if it can’t be saved

Who can perform a Tooth Extraction?

At The Smilist Dental, you can feel reassured with our highly experienced & trained dental professionals who can perform tooth extractions.

For a simple tooth extraction of a tooth that can be seen, general dentists usually perform these procedures. They use a dental instrument known as an elevator to loosen the tooth and forceps to extract the tooth.

For a surgical tooth extraction, like a wisdom tooth extraction, an oral surgeon performs these highly specialized procedures. When a tooth has broken off at the gum or hidden in the gum, the oral surgeon would make an incision in your gum to expose the tooth and extract it.
