Tooth Extraction


The removal of a tooth or Tooth extraction process is quite natural among adults, despite the fact that their teeth are meant to stay for a life-time. While we can notice many teens and few adults get their wisdom teeth extracted, there are also a bunch of reasons why tooth extraction may be required in the adult stage.


Severe tooth decay, tooth infection, dental cavities, gum issues, wisdom teeth complications, injury to the tooth or surrounding bone, getting ready for a dental prosthesis or dental braces, and crowding can all require a tooth extraction. Furthermore, any individual who is undergoing the process of chemotherapy or is about to get an organ transplant done may require this approach so that they can keep their mouth healthy.

What will your dentist do?

Before planning your whole procedure, your specialist, will take an X-ray of your tooth and will go through your total medical history, the medications and supplements you are taking and if you have one of the following:

  • Damaged or man-made heart valves
  • History of bacterial endocarditis
  • Congenital heart defect
  • Impaired immune system
  • Artificial joint, such as a hip replacement
  • Liver problems

The correct type of tooth extraction is based on the tooth’s shape, size, position, and location in the mouth. Tooth extraction is done in two approaches: simple or surgical. This actually depends on whether your tooth is visible or impacted.


Simple extraction
