Why is my tooth removed?

Any tooth is extracted when it

  •  is severely damaged due to decay
  • is mobile due to gum infection
  • is an extra tooth in the mouth
  • has to create space for correction of crooked teeth
  • is a wisdom tooth that is causing repeated infection
  • is an over retained milk tooth that is preventing the eruption of a permanent tooth.
