Dental extraction, or tooth removal, is a common procedure when a tooth is taken out from its jaw socket. It’s necessary for reasons like severe decay, advanced gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth causing pain, or creating space for orthodontic treatment. The dentist usually does this under local anesthesia. Post-extraction care is crucial, and the dentist provides aftercare instructions. In some cases, missing teeth can be replaced with implants, bridges, or dentures to restore function and appearance.
