Reasons for Tooth Extractions

Although permanent teeth were meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons why Dr. Michael Eisenbrock, DDS at Bensalem Family Dentistry may need to perform a tooth extraction. A very common reason involves a tooth that is too badly damaged, from trauma or decay, to be repaired. Wisdom teeth removal is the most common type of tooth extraction because these teeth can easily become infected if they do not emerge properly. Aside from wisdom teeth removal, other reasons for extractions may include:

  • Severe tooth damage/trauma – some teeth have such extensive decay and damage (broken or cracked) that repair is not possible.

  • Orthodontic treatment – people getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for teeth that are being moved into place.

  • Some teeth may need to be extracted if they have the potential of becoming infected.

  • Extra teeth – extra teeth may block other teeth from erupting, therefore, will require extraction.
