What are Painless Tooth Extractions?
Tooth Extraction: Cost, Procedure, Risks, and Recovery
Tooth extraction is a dental procedure during which your tooth is completely removed from its socket. Sometimes, people refer to this as “pulling" a tooth.
When is tooth extraction recommended?
Healthcare providers prefer to save natural teeth whenever possible. But sometimes, other restorative methods — such as dental fillings or dental crowns — aren’t enough. If your tooth has been badly damaged past the point of repair, then removal may be necessary. Your dentist may recommend tooth extraction if you have:
Severe tooth decay (cavities).
An impacted tooth.
Severe gum disease.
Tooth luxation or other dental injuries.
