Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. At Kizer Dental Associates, our caring dentists strive to avoid the need for tooth extraction when possible. In certain cases, however, tooth extraction may be the best option for restoring your oral health and allowing your smile to heal. Dr. Kizer and Dr. Smith may recommend tooth extraction if your smile is affected by the following conditions:
- Severe tooth decay or injury that has damaged a tooth so badly that it cannot be effectively restored with a dental crown, filling, or other type of restoration
- Infection that has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone structure
- Tooth overcrowding caused by too many teeth in the mouth that cannot be corrected through orthodontic treatment
