Tooth Extractions

What is a tooth extraction?

The removal of a tooth is called a tooth extraction. While we strive to provide the most conservative type of treatment possible, tooth extraction may be necessary in certain cases. Our talented dentist may recommend tooth extraction if it is the best solution for restoring your smile to good health.

Does my tooth need to be extracted?

Dr. Shane Newton may suggest a tooth extraction if:

  • A tooth is so severely damaged or decayed that a dental crown, filling, or other type of restoration cannot effectively restore the tooth
  • There is not enough room for all of the teeth to properly fit in the mouth, causing overcrowding
  • Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and/or supporting bone structure
