Reason for tooth extractions
There are a number of reasons why a tooth extraction may be needed:
- Some people have overcrowded mouths, and have some teeth removed as part of their orthodontic (teeth straightening) treatment.
- Sometimes teeth become too badly decayed or damaged to be repaired, and need to be extracted.
- Gum disease can, in its later stages, cause teeth to become so loose that they have to be taken out.
- Some people have to have their wisdom teeth removed, usually because they are growing in the wrong direction and are causing problems.
