Tooth decay and damage can reach a point where restoration is no longer an option. In such cases, tooth extraction becomes the most effective solution to remove non-restorable teeth and prevent the spread of infection.

Whether you require extraction due to extensive decay, disease, impacted wisdom teeth, or orthodontic treatment, our experienced team ensures a smooth and successful extraction process. Let’s explore the common reasons for tooth extraction and highlight our commitment to your comfort and well-being throughout the procedure.

Common Reasons for Tooth Extraction


Decayed or Damaged Teeth

Tooth extractions are often necessary when teeth are extensively damaged or decayed beyond repair. Extracting these teeth alleviates pain and prevents the risk of infection and further oral health complications.


Severe periodontal disease or tooth infections can weaken the gums and lead to loose teeth. When decay and infection reach an advanced stage, extraction becomes the only viable option to eliminate the source of infection and restore oral health.

Impacted Teeth

Impacted wisdom teeth, which fail to fully emerge or grow in a proper alignment, may require oral surgery to be extracted safely and prevent potential complications, such as pain, infection, and overcrowding.


In certain orthodontic cases, tooth extraction may be necessary to create adequate space for proper teeth alignment during orthodontic treatment.


Post-Extraction Care


Antibiotics and Special Instructions

After tooth extraction, our dental professionals may prescribe antibiotics or provide specific aftercare instructions tailored to your needs. Following these recommendations diligently is crucial for a fast and successful recovery.

Dr. Lee was incredibly kind, clear, and thorough when I went for a consultation. Doctors who spend time explaining things to a patient and giving them the best and most affordable options do not abound these days. He is very smart too. Strongly recommended!
