A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. A tooth extraction is rarely ever a first choice. A dentist will try to fix a tooth with a filing, crown, or other treatment before extraction becomes an option. However, if the tooth cannot be repaired because it has received too much damage, has been broken, or the decay is too deep, the tooth will need to be extracted from the mouth in order to protect the health of the remaining teeth.
The causes for a tooth needing to be extracted can vary. Severe decay that cannot be successfully removed and treated from a tooth is one of the most serious causes. If decay has reached the inner layers of a tooth, it is essential that the tooth be removed in order to prevent the decay and infection from affecting neighboring teeth and the gum tissue. Any sort of serious decay and/or infection can easily spread throughout the mouth – and into the entire body – through the living tissues and blood stream. Other reasons for tooth extractions include significant injury to a tooth, a broken tooth that leaves part of the tooth still attached at the root, and insufficient room inside the mouth for a permanent tooth to erupt.
