The tooth may be too damaged to be saved by root canal or endodontic therapy. In this case, your dentist will remove the tooth and replace it with a dental implant, partial, or bridge.
Advanced gum disease
Severe gum disease causes teeth to become loose and fall out. When the soft tissues, ligaments, and bone that support the tooth have been destroyed by bacteria and there is nothing to anchor the tooth, your dentist will remove the tooth and replace it.
Impacted wisdom teeth
An impacted wisdom tooth is a tooth that is trapped in the gums or bone. The tooth comes out only partially because there is no more room in the jaw. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause severe pain, infection, and damage to nearby structures. Your dentist will extract the tooth to prevent complications.
In some cases, teeth may have to be removed to make braces or orthodontic appliances work properly.
Complete denture placement
Complete dentures replace an entire row of teeth. Any remaining teeth in the arch must be removed to make room for the appliance.
