Tooth extraction, or “pulling” of a tooth, is simply removal of a tooth from the mouth with local anesthesia (numbing).
Tooth extractions may be indicated for a number of reasons including:
- Extensive decay rendering a tooth non-restorable
- Impacted or problematic wisdom teeth
- To create space for orthodontic treatment (braces)
- Broken or cracked teeth
