When a tooth is severely damaged, it may need to be removed. Your dentist, or an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, can remove a tooth.
A tooth extraction is necessary when decay or gum disease is so severe that the use of other any other treatment will not be able to cure the infection on that tooth. Once reached that point, it is important to remove the tooth, before the infection spreads to other areas of your mouth.
Your dentist will give you a local anesthetic before removing your tooth to numb the area where it will be extracted. You may need stitches to help with the healing process after an extraction. The removed tooth can be replaced with an implant, a denture, or a bridge.
