When deciding on whether to perform an extraction the dentist is usually referring to impacted wisdom teeth. This can lead to discomfort, inflammation, infection, and even decay caused by the tooth growing into the mouth and pushing against other teeth. In cases like this, the dentist will most likely extract the wisdom teeth.
But when it comes to extracting other teeth in the mouth, here at Dentistry by Isaac Gabay, we will do everything we can to save the tooth before exploring extraction. If the tooth has been traumatized, is badly decaying, or there is excessive bone loss around the tooth due to periodontal disease and the tooth is very loose the dentist will consider extraction to preserve the health of the teeth surrounding it, as well as your entire mouth.
