Tooth extraction is the removal of the tooth from its socket in the bone.
The reason you may require a tooth extraction is because either:
a) there is not enough room for it and it will become impacted (in the case of wisdom teeth surgery)
b) it must be removed to assure that the rest of your teeth grow properly
c) it so severely decayed that it is beyond repair.
Here at Richmond dental our dental surgeons are highly experienced at carrying out tooth extractions using the latest techniques. We aim to make your visit as comfortable and painless as possible.
