An extraction is the removal of a tooth from your mouth. This can be done easily and painlessly in our office. Extractions are done for many reasons, such as: tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable, bone loss around a tooth due to an issue with the tooth itself, problematic exposed wisdom teeth that are causing pain or periodontal issues, or to make space for orthodontic treatment or an implant, etc.
