Tooth extraction may be necessary for a number of reasons. However, the most common reason to remove a tooth is when it becomes irreparable due to decay, trauma or disease. Impacted wisdom teeth are another common reason for extraction. Impacted wisdom teeth may cause reoccurring infections of the gum. If orthodontic treatment is necessary, healthy teeth may be extracted to create space to straighten the remaining teeth. Most extractions are performed using a local anesthetic to dull pain.
