Tooth extractions are used to benefit and protect your mouth and overall health. One of the most common procedures is wisdom tooth extraction. These procedures are often recommended before impaction in order to prevent further damage to an individual’s mouth as well as helping to prevent overcrowding a row of teeth. Tooth extractions are also used to prevent infection from spreading to the surrounding teeth. If left untreated, painful cysts can form in a patient’s mouth. Extractions are also beneficial for removing a severely damaged tooth.
