Health is Wealth: Tooth Extractions
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. In this case, the tooth needs to be extracted. A very loose tooth also will require extraction if it can’t be saved, even with bone replacement surgery (bone graft). Harjinder Thind talks with dentist Dr. Anureet Dhaliwal about extractions, the complications once can possibly face and how one can keep their teeth healthy.
