Tooth extraction occurs when a tooth is removed from the mouth. Tooth extraction usually occurs when there’s too much damage to a tooth and can’t be repaired. Decay, infection and crowding are also reasons that a dentist will extract a tooth.

Tooth extraction is often performed by an experienced dentist but in some cases you will need to see an oral surgeon to have a tooth or teeth extracted. The dentists at Keith Nelson have over 80 years combined experience…thousands of teeth have been painlessly extracted over the years.

Don’t stress. It’s usually a quick procedure that’s certainly different to getting a filling – but probably not as bad as you have imagined.
