Damaged or infected teeth can be removed in a process known as extraction. This becomes necessary when:

  • A tooth has become decayed beyond repair
  • Advanced bone loss has occurred
  • Orthodontic purposes

Extraction can prevent infection from spreading to other teeth or bodily tissues and are done in either a surgical procedure or a less complicated process using forceps and local anesthesia. Once the tooth or teeth have been extracted, an implant can easily be used to fill the gap.
