If a damaged, decayed, or otherwise compromised tooth can be saved with restorative treatment, that is the preferable option. However, some teeth need to be extracted to maintain your oral health. Wisdom teeth are the most common examples of necessary tooth extraction, since they often become impacted and can cause a host of complications.
Other situations that might call for tooth extraction include:
- Severely damaged teeth that cannot be restored
- Teeth with cracked or fractured roots
- Teeth that don’t have enough support due to severe periodontal disease
- Severely infected teeth (when root canal treatment won’t suffice)
