Tooth extractions are common procedures performed by our team here at American Smile in London. If you have had an accident or infection has developed and you have advanced gum disease, pulling a tooth may be your only option. Choosing American Smile vastly reduces the chances of developing a further infection of the tooth and the surrounding area.
A tooth extraction procedure involves gently removing a tooth from its socket in your jaw bone. While extracting a tooth is rare, there are various situations that can lead to an emergency procedure like this, such as:
- Wisdom teeth infection
- Untreated tooth decay
- Development (to make room for permanent teeth to grow correctly)
- Other infections
