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.
