Tooth extraction is the process wherein the tooth is removed from its sockets in the jawbone. If the damage to the tooth is minimal then our dentist can examine it to see if other options and route can be done like a filling or a crown. When it comes to the point that too much damage has already happened, then the tooth will be extracted and pulled out as required. Aside from damage, an extraction also happens if you have a very loose tooth.
Other Reasons for Tooth Extraction
Apart from the reasons mentioned above, there are still some other reasons why an extraction is needed. One of which is when some people have extra teeth that block new ones from emerging.
