Extracting teeth is far from Dr. Niraja and Dr. Jimish’s go-to options in dentistry. No tooth replacement can offer the functions that natural teeth can, which why we go out of our way to keep them in place whenever possible. However, if a tooth is putting your neighboring teeth at risk or the tooth is damaged beyond repair, then a tooth extraction is likely the next best step to protect your mouth. Our dental office will make sure to help you stay comfortable as possible and explain every step of your treatment beforehand.

Why Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?
The most common reason teeth need to be extracted is because of extreme damage caused by physical trauma or long-term decay. However, sometimes teeth are also extracted in order to make room for orthodontic treatment. In other cases, additional teeth can erupt without enough space in the mouth to accommodate them. If they erupt underneath existing teeth or get trapped underneath gum tissue, it can easily cause an oral infection. Overall, teeth are extracted only when they are causing serious problems or the patient has a high risk of damage and in the near-future.
