Tooth Extraction is More Common Than You Think
While it is never pleasant to lose a tooth, over 74 percent of American adults have had at least one tooth extracted within their lifetime. Our doctors will always try to save your natural teeth, but in extreme circumstances, tooth extractions may be the best option to save your oral health and prevent future problems, and pain, from occurring. Another common reason you may require tooth extraction is due to the development of wisdom teeth. As wisdom teeth grow in, they can cause a variety of problems if not removed by qualified dental professionals.
