Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth in order to improve your overall oral health. Whenever possible, our dentist avoids the need for tooth extraction. In some cases, however, removing a tooth may be the best option for improving the health and function of your smile.
Do I need a tooth extraction?
Dr. Bhoompalli may recommend tooth extraction if:
- A tooth has become impacted (stuck in the jawbone and gum tissue)
- Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and supporting bone
- A tooth is so severely damaged or decayed that it cannot be effectively restored
- There are too many teeth to fit in the mouth
