The name of the procedure is fairly self-explanatory, but there is more to it than you might think. When a tooth is professionally extracted, the dentist ensures that it is removed entirely (including the root) from the alveolar bone which houses said tooth. Not removing the tooth in its entirety can lead to discomfort and severe infections.
Tooth extractions are some of the most common dental procedures performed by dentists. There are both cosmetic and health-related reasons to remove a tooth. Cosmetically, removing a tooth can create space if your teeth are crowded which helps complete orthodontic procedures to straighten your smile. A tooth may also be extracted if it’s the sight of an infection or if it prevents an impacted tooth from erupting through the gum line.
