Exploring tooth extraction

Reasons To Have Teeth Pulled

There are a variety of reasons why a tooth may need extracting. Here are a few of the most common reasons: 


Sometimes bacteria has entered the tooth and degraded the pulp beyond repair. If antibiotics or other therapies do not work, it may be necessary to remove the tooth.

A Crowded Mouth

Sometimes a patient’s teeth may be too big for their mouth. This can cause crowding and eventually misalignment of the teeth. Orthodontics may require removal.

Infection Prevention

Sometimes a tooth is extracted if the patient is at a high risk of infection with a compromised immune system (ie. chemotherapy or organ transplant).

Literally the best dentist I’ve been able to see. Fast, efficient and good at all their jobs while being very polite. I highly recommend them!
