Common Reasons You May Need a Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is an outpatient procedure performed by Dr. Adkins to remove a whole or partial tooth from the mouth. While we will explore every treatment option for your oral health, tooth extraction may be the recommended course of action to alleviate the following issues:


Decayed/Damaged Tooth: If you have a tooth that has decayed or damaged, our team will first attempt to fix it with fillings or crowns. However, if the tooth is beyond repair, it may need to be extracted.


Crowded Teeth: Sometimes, tooth extraction is required to make room for newer teeth to push through the gums. If you have braces, a tooth may also be removed in some cases to ensure that there is enough room for your teeth to align correctly.


Periodontal Disease: Also known as gum disease, this is the most common reason for tooth loss. If untreated, the disease can become more severe, and extraction will be required to prevent infection.


Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth are commonly removed before they come in, but some need to be removed even earlier if they are decayed or infected.

Benefits of Tooth Extractions

While patients often feel anxious about the idea of scheduling a tooth extraction, Dr. Adkins relies on the most advanced technology and treatment methods available to deliver precise results. There can be many long-lasting benefits from a tooth extraction, including the following:


- Pain relief from the removal of infected, decayed, or damaged teeth


- Reduced risk of infection or decay spreading to other teeth


- Better alignment of teeth due to less crowding
