DR Reshma may recommend a tooth extraction to address severe decay, tooth damage or overcrowding of teeth. Tooth extraction is always considered a treatment of last resort to restore or maintain your optimal overall dental health.
The tooth extraction procedure is generally quick and with the use of a local anesthetic, minimally uncomfortable.
One of the most common tooth extractions is wisdom tooth removal. Often considered a “rite of passage” for young adults, removing wisdom teeth is recommended when they are impacted in the bone or present a threat to long term oral health.
