Tooth Extractions

An extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Tooth Extractions in San Diego are performed for a variety of different reasons.

In most cases, extractions are used as a last resort when the affected teeth cannot be saved through other measures. These situations often include:
– Decay of the exterior and interior structures of the tooth
– Widespread periodontal disease
– Eroded jawbone that can no longer hold the tooth in place
– Deep tooth fracture

In some cases, your dentist might recommend a tooth be extracted to improve the health of surrounding teeth.

Depending on the type of tooth extraction your dentist recommends, your procedure may be simple or require surgery. Either way, the team at Torrey Hills Dental is here to guide you through a successful tooth extraction experience.
