Why Are Teeth Removed?
Dental extractions occur when you have damaged or diseased teeth that cannot be saved, or when you have teeth that are causing or are likely to cause oral health problems.
Excessive tooth decay, tooth infection, and crowding can all require a tooth extraction. Those who get braces may need one or two teeth removed to provide room for their other teeth as they shift into place. Tooth extraction is a relatively quick outpatient procedure.
