Tooth extraction is the process of removing a single tooth or multiple teeth. There are several reasons why a tooth extraction is necessary. Tooth decay is one the top reasons why tooth extraction is needed by patients because it can result to more serious dental problems thus, decayed tooth removal is the most effective preventive action to avoid different dental relate diseases. Gum diseases are another reason why people opt to have their teeth extracted.
There are two types of tooth extraction – the simple extraction and the surgical extraction. In the simple extraction, the teeth are externally visible and can easily be extracted by your Glendora dentist with the help of an anesthetic injection. While the surgical extraction is a more complicated operation. This is recommended when the tooth is not accessible and hidden in the gum line. There are other procedures and examinations to successfully perform surgical extraction.

As much as possible, your GlendorA dentist, Dr. Desai won’t directly decide that you need to pull out the tooth and use fabricated teeth to replace the missing tooth. In most cases, we will advise you to use some alternative options especially in the case where tooth extraction is not really necessary. Other dental cosmetic procedures like a tooth filling or root canal may be able to address minor dental problems.
