Why do teeth need to be extracted?

Several situations necessitate extraction of teeth, including deep cavities, fractures, gum disease, severe infections, and to create more space to facilitate orthodontic treatment.

Most extractions can be done with local anaesthesia (numbing of the gum). This ensures that the patient will not experience any pain, but will feel some pressure and possibly hear some noises. For patients that require a deeper level of sedation, our surgeons will discuss all of the available anaesthetic options.
