Tooth extraction is necessary when a tooth is broken, damaged beyond repair, or very loose. The dentist will only remove the tooth from the socket if the tooth cannot be fixed with a filling or crown. There are two types of extractions – simple and surgical. Simple extractions are performed by loosening the tooth and removing it with forceps.
Tooth extractions are also necessary in the following cases:
• Extra teeth that obstruct other teeth from coming in
• Baby teeth that don’t fall out, which obstruct permanent teeth to come in
• Wisdom teeth if they cause pain or are infected.
