When Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Tooth loss is a very common occurrence—over 74% of all adults have had a tooth extracted at some point in their lifetime. However, having a tooth extraction by a board-certified oral surgeon provides you many benefits. Oral surgeons typically extract hundreds of teeth in just their education alone, and our team has over 40 years combined experience in practice, meaning we have extracted thousands of teeth. Tooth extractions can be necessary for a variety of reasons but they are typically performed with the overall goal of preserving the health of surrounding teeth and bone or preparing for dental implants. We perform tooth extractions almost every single day and are trained and equipped to handle any problems that may arise during or after the procedure, such as a tooth breaking or preventing an infection.
