When is a extraction necessary?
A tooth extraction is quite simply removing a tooth from the mouth. The most common type of extraction is for wisdom teeth, although there are many reasons that an extraction might need to take place. If a tooth has suffered severe decay and cannot be restored for example, an extraction
might be the best option.
We focus on saving the tooth first
