Extractions

The removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to
render the tooth un-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for people requiring dental braces.
