A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its space in the jaw and may be required if a tooth is too damaged or decayed for a routine dental filling or dental crown. This is generally the result of severe tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma that has permanently injured the tooth roots. When this occurs, a tooth can sometimes be saved through root canal therapy, but will generally require a tooth extraction. Tooth extractions are also necessary for impacted or infected wisdom teeth, or to create space for teeth to be properly aligned during orthodontic treatment.
