Though dentist’s attempt to save and maintain teeth, sometimes a tooth may need to be extracted. This can occur for a number of different reasons including:
- Impacted wisdom teeth or third molars (could cause pain)
- Tooth affected by decay
- Tooth affected by periodontal or gum disease
- Trauma from an accident
- To eliminate overcrowding
In some cases, you may be referred to an oral surgeon to have a consultation and treatment.
