Tooth Extraction Services in San Diego
Tooth extraction can be performed for a variety of reasons, including tooth decay, injury, infection, and for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Kwok will do his best to save your teeth if possible.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
The most common reason for the removal of a tooth is severe decay or breakage of a tooth that cannot be saved. However, teeth may also be removed because of:
- Severe tooth decay or infection
- Extra teeth that are blocking other teeth from growing in (supernumerary teeth)
- Severe gum disease
- Orthodontic treatment
- Non-restorable teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Cosmetic reasons
Regardless of the reasons that a tooth must be pulled, extractions are usually reserved only for cases in which no other treatment option will solve the problem.
