Healthy Smiles from Our Family to Yours
A dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable or teeth that have been broken beyond repair.
Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
The "periodontium" consists of the bone and the gum tissue that support the teeth in the jaws. Gingivitis and periodontitis are diseases of these tissues. When disease is present, it is crucial to treat the infection, or tooth loss may occur. Systemic health is also adversely affected by the bacteria that is specific to periodontia infections, putting patients at risk of heart disease and strokes.
