Tooth Extractions

If you have a decayed, broken, or infected tooth that cannot be restored using a filling or crown, tooth extraction may be required. Tooth extractions are often recommended to fix the problem of teeth overcrowding. This helps create the required space for your teeth to realign when you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. At Doral Dental Speciality Center, we provide tooth extraction and a wide range of other oral surgery procedures to help you address your dental problem.

What is Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction is an oral surgical procedure that involves a tooth being completely removed from its socket. The procedure is typically performed by our oral surgeons and periodontists. While general dentists can also perform extractions, the more complex ones are handled by periodontists or oral surgeons.

When is a Tooth Extraction Required?

Tooth extraction or ‘pulling’ is often required when you have gum disease, severe decay, or trauma. When your tooth has a large cavity, due to tooth decay, an extraction can leave you feeling better. We always strive to save a tooth. It is only when a tooth is damaged beyond the possibility of restoration that we may suggest extraction.

Routine teeth cleanings and check-ups are important for keeping your teeth healthy. Our dentists may require a tooth extraction in the following conditions:
