Tooth Extractions

Tooth extraction, the process of removing a tooth from its socket in the bone, is a common procedure in dental practices. While Dr. Christian Nwokorie and Dr. Rashmi Thapa prioritize saving your natural teeth whenever possible, there are situations where extraction becomes the best option to preserve your overall oral health.

Several conditions may lead to the need for a tooth extraction:

  • Severe infection: When an infection reaches the tooth’s pulp, it can cause significant damage. If the infection destroys a substantial portion of the tooth and the surrounding bone structure, extraction might be the only viable solution to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Advanced decay: In cases where tooth decay has progressed beyond the point of repair, making restoration impractical, removing the tooth can prevent further complications and pain.
  • Crowding: Sometimes, there are too many teeth in the mouth for them to align properly. Extraction can be necessary to make room for the remaining teeth to fit comfortably and to facilitate orthodontic treatments.
