When Does a Tooth Require Extraction?
When an extraction is performed, it’s typically because the tooth has become so damaged that it cannot survive inside the mouth. It also means that neither a filling, dental crown nor root canal treatment is enough to salvage it. Teeth that have experienced severe decay or fracture from an injury are often extracted. When decayed teeth are kept in the mouth, it increases the risk of neighboring teeth becoming infected as well. During your checkup, we’ll confirm the exact condition of your tooth and highlight all of your options before beginning any treatment.
