At Dental Excellence in Tucson, we understand that tooth extraction can be daunting for many patients. However, removal is sometimes necessary to improve or protect oral health and prevent further damage.

Reasons for tooth extractions

Why are tooth extractions sometimes needed?

When a tooth is severely damaged or infected and cannot be restored through other means, such as fillings or root canals, extraction is often the best option for protecting a patient’s oral health. Teeth that are crowded, impacted, or causing misalignment of surrounding teeth may also require removal as it can help prevent further damage and improve a patient’s oral health.
