Extractions – Port City Family Dentistry

Tooth extractions occur mainly when a tooth (or more accurately, the root or gums) becomes infected so much that a root canal is not feasible. Extractions may also be performed if the tooth has corroded too much to be worth trying to repair, or if a tooth is growing in too close to other teeth. Wisdom teeth are notorious for causing terribly destructive issues in one’s mouth and are often extracted long before they even have the chance to do so as a precaution.
