When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

We will not recommend a tooth extraction unless we believe that it is truly warranted. Here are some examples of circumstances where a tooth may need to be removed:

  • Your tooth is damaged, and it is no longer viable to save it with a dental crown or root canal treatment.
  • Your teeth are severely crowded together, and you are unable to have orthodontic treatment performed as a result.
  • You need to have a tooth removed before you can receive dentures.
  • You have an advanced form of gum disease, and as a result, a tooth has come loose.
  • Your child has a baby tooth that has remained in the mouth for longer than it should.
