What to Expect During Your Tooth Extraction
In most cases, some type of trauma or damage has affected the tooth beyond reasonable repair, thus requiring an extraction. In situations like these, the root of the tooth must be removed from the bone and separated from the ligament. We then use our trusted techniques to apply pressure to the socket surrounding the bone and gently lift the tooth out of its socket.
A few common reasons a tooth extraction may be necessary:
- Severe tooth damage due to decay
- Periodontal disease
- Impacted tooth
- Overcrowding of teeth
- Severe tooth damage due to trauma
