A tooth must sometimes be removed; for instance, when a baby tooth prevents the permanent tooth from erupting because it is slow to fall out, when a permanent tooth is broken or too damaged, or when a wisdom tooth has insufficient space to erupt normally.

Tooth extraction is performed under local anesthesia. In certain cases, medication is prescribed to reduce sensitivity.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

In certain cases, individuals must have their wisdom teeth extracted based on their dentist’s diagnosis.

If teeth have sufficient space in the jaw, they will erupt normally. However, it would be better to remove them if they affect adjacent molar teeth or if they will very likely become a source of oral health problems.

Wisdom teeth normally appear between the ages of 16 and 25. This is why individuals in this age group are strongly recommended to monitor the eruption process and position of their wisdom teeth.

Loss of a Permanent Tooth

If you have lost a permanent tooth, other than a wisdom tooth, it is usually important to replace it in order to avoid other complications.
