What is Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extraction or generally known as dental extraction is often done if any of the teeth has been severely damaged or completely lost. Dentists try to save a tooth through root canals. However, sometimes a tooth is so badly damaged it cannot be saved. At this point, a tooth removal or tooth extraction is the only option.
Aside from tooth decay, there are a variety of reasons why tooth extraction is needed. Some of which are periodontal disease, fractured teeth, Malocclusion or crowding of teeth, and more.
