Dental extractions known as “pulling-out the tooth” are performed for many reasons.
Tooth decay that has destroyed enough the structure of the tooth to prevent restoration is the most frequent indication for extraction of teeth.
Other indications are related to impacted or problematic wisdom teeth. Also extractions are done to make space for orthodontic treatment in some particular cases.
Also, teeth extractions are indicated when teeth are loose and they cannot be saved due to gum disease (periodontal disease) or when the teeth are fracturedd under the gum and cannot be restored.
