Washington Heights Tooth Extractions
Sometimes tooth decay is too extensive for repairs. In this case, tooth extraction is the only effective solution to remove non-restorable teeth and prevent infections from spreading.
Tooth extractions may be necessary for many reasons, with the most common ones being:
- Decayed or damaged teeth: Most often, tooth extractions are necessary when teeth are too damaged or decayed for repairs. Extracting these teeth relieves pain and prevents infection.
- Infection: Periodontal disease and tooth infections weaken the gums and loosen teeth. When decay becomes this extensive, the only option is an extraction.
- Impacted teeth: Impacted wisdom teeth require oral surgery to remove them.
- Orthodontics: Teeth may need to be removed to make space for orthodontic treatment.
