An extraction is a procedure in which a tooth is removed from the mouth. This option is usually only considered after all other methods or means of treatment and repair have been exhausted. Common reasons for extraction include:
Severe tooth decay or infection of the tooth
Advanced gum disease that could lead to damage to supporting tissue and bone structure
To create room for other incoming teeth, or to move one into a proper place, as related to orthodontic work
Wisdom teeth or third molars causing pain, or to avoid complications before they come in
If you feel that you may have a tooth needing removal, get ahead of the issue before it worsens. Call Pema Dental Center at (480) 832-9199 or CLICK HERE to make an appointment.
