Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extractions in Southampton, PA

Tooth extractions are performed at Sleek Smile Studio for a variety of reasons. Dr. Paola Bukovcan may need to extract a tooth to create room for dental prostheses or braces or a significantly decayed tooth might be the problem.

Reasons For Dental Extractions

Dental extractions are quite a frequent occurrence in dentistry, yet they don’t always mean your mouth is in bad shape. Some of the most likely causes Dr. Paola Bukovcan recommends tooth extractions are listed below.

  • Infection: Infections or decay can arise because of gum disease or cavities, necessitating the extraction of problematic teeth.
  • Braces: A patient may need one or more teeth extracted to create space for the correct placement of braces.
  • Wisdom Teeth: Many dental patients don’t have enough room for their wisdom teeth; thus, they must be removed to maintain oral health and to prevent further crowding.
