Dental extraction is a common general dentistry service where a tooth is removed from the mouth. Extractions may become necessary for several reasons including severe tooth decay or infection, tooth damage due to breakage, severe gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth, to make space for orthodontic treatment, or during childhood, when baby teeth don’t fall out quickly enough to create space for emerging adult teeth.

Extractions can be simple or surgical. Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible and easily accessible in the mouth. Simple extractions do not require an incision and are performed under local anesthetic.

However, surgical extractions require an oral surgeon and are usually necessary for more complicated situations, which may include:

  • cracked or fractured teeth
  • entangled or multiple curved roots
  • impacted teeth
  • wisdom teeth
  • overly large sinuses
  • teeth or bone infections
