What Is Teeth Extraction?

When your tooth has endured significant damage or decay, reaching a state where conventional remedies like fillings or crowns are ineffective, your dentist might choose the final course of action: tooth extraction.

Indeed, if your tooth has suffered severe harm beyond the possibility of repair, the extraction becomes an essential procedure. This dental intervention involves the complete removal of your tooth from its socket (pulling the tooth).

However, the primary teeth, commonly known as milk teeth, may naturally loosen and fall out to pave the way for permanent teeth, often without requiring professional dental intervention or extraction.

Various conditions may require tooth extraction, including excessive tooth decay, tooth infections, and overcrowding. Dental practitioners, alongside specialized professionals like oral surgeons and periodontists, are often capable of performing tooth extractions.

The roots of dental extractions can be traced back to the 14th century, showcasing their long-standing presence in the field of dentistry. Following the extraction, the socket typically takes approximately 1 to 2 weeks to heal, while the affected bone and surrounding tissues may require a slightly longer duration for complete recovery.
