What Is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is a procedure where a damaged, decayed, or infected tooth is removed from its socket in the jawbone. Our dental team performs this procedure under local anesthesia. Most of the time, we will recommend a tooth extraction if a tooth is causing pain, is infected, or is impacted. An impacted tooth is when a tooth does not grow out of the gum properly. This happens when there is a lack of space in the mouth or an obstruction of some kind that prevents the tooth from growing out of the gum. Our dental team provides tooth extractions to our patients to relieve pain, prevent the spread of infection, or make room for orthodontic treatments. Extractions are a cost-effective alternative option to attempts to repair a damaged or decayed tooth.
