You might be surprised to learn this, but tooth extractions are not nearly as bad as you’ve heard. The horror stories are only rivaled by misinformation, and contrary to popular belief, tooth extractions are only completed when absolutely necessary.

What is a Tooth Extraction?

A dental extraction is a minor oral surgery that involves removing a tooth from the gum and alveolar bone – also known as the tooth socket. Although extractions may sound scary, they are completed using anesthetics so you will not feel pain during the procedure.

Why Would I Need a Tooth Extraction?

Generally speaking, tooth extractions are never a dentists’ first option. We will always explore alternatives and do our best to find a solution that does not involve removing a tooth. However, in cases in which a tooth is severely infected and cannot be salvaged, an extraction becomes the only course of action.

Other common instances that could call for an extraction include impacted teeth or dental overcrowding. An impacted tooth is one that is growing at an angle or does not have enough room to erupt through the gum line. In these cases, an extraction might be necessary to create the space the tooth needs to grow. Extractions are also used for orthodontic procedures that require more room than is available in a crowded mouth.
