Common Reasons
for Tooth Extraction

Your permanent teeth are supposed to last the rest of your life. An extraction in Bustleton is only considered necessary in very specific circumstances. This includes:

  • You have tooth decay that has resulted in irreparable damage and threatens to spread to other parts of the mouth.
  • You have a tooth that is trapped underneath the gums and can’t erupt normally.
  • Your teeth are too crowded together and can’t be adjusted with orthodontic treatment.
  • You were in an accident that broke the tooth in a way that prevents it from being restored.

How Tooth
Extractions Work

We will use special dental instruments to loosen the tooth before removing it altogether with forceps. The tooth might have to be split into pieces to be extracted safely. This approach is known as a surgical extraction. Simple extractions in Northeast Philadelphia (which are more straightforward and only require local anesthesia) can be performed if the tooth is already visible in the mouth.
