Tooth Extraction

This is the removal of the entire tooth due to a variety of reasons, which include infection, deep decay, crowding, etc.


Although advances in dental treatment have made it easier for us to save your damaged teeth, there are still cases where the entire tooth must be removed.

There are many reasons to perform a tooth extraction, including:

  • Incoming wisdom teeth that are impacted or otherwise painful
  • Making room for newly arranged teeth in patients who have braces
  • Removal of extra teeth
  • Acute tooth decay, infection, or gum disease

A tooth that has already broken through the gum line, making it visible, requires a simple extraction. We perform surgical extractions when the tooth cannot be reached easily, or if there is a need to remove additional bone tissue that surrounds the affected tooth.

Thanks to our expertise, your tooth extraction process will be quick, easy, and as painless as possible.
