Why do you need tooth extractions?
Some people may be lucky and never have a tooth removed. When teeth are broken or damaged, dentists generally try to fix them by fillings, crowns or procedures such as root canal. However if it a tooth is beyond repair, it may need to be extracted.
There are other reasons why you may need a tooth extraction. These include:
Wisdom teeth causing pain or discomfort
Crowding in the mouth which blocks other teeth from coming through
