At times a tooth may be too damaged for it to be repaired with any dental treatments and we recommend for it to be removed. Teeth may also need to be extracted because of infection, gum disease and crowding. There are two types of extractions:
- Simple extraction: This is where our dental tools can be used to pull a tooth out when the tooth is easily accessible.
- Surgical Extraction: A surgical extraction needs to be done when the tooth is not easily accessible, badly broken and not very visible. We make small incisions in the tissues so that the tooth can be removed.
