Tooth extractions can be necessary for a number of reasons.
Sometimes a “baby” tooth is slow to fall out, and needs to make space for adult teeth.
Later on in life, “wisdom teeth” can cause pain due to poor positioning, and removal becomes necessary.
A broken or infected tooth that cannot be restored is another situation that necessitates an extraction.

She will also explain restorative options for after the tooth is removed, including implants, partials and bridges.
