When Would You Need a Tooth Extraction?

An extraction is normally only performed under specific circumstances that require it. This includes:

  • Decay that has already damaged or destroyed over two-thirds of the enamel
  • Damage to the tooth structure that is beyond the point where it could be repaired
  • Gum disease that has irreversibly destroyed the tooth’s support
  • The need to make room for another type of treatment such as placing dentures or an orthodontic appliance
  • Baby teeth that have failed to fall out when they were supposed to

The extraction is performed with a local anesthetic that will prevent you from feeling anything during the procedure. It will only take 2 or 3 days for your mouth to recover and feel normal again.
