If a tooth is impacted or infected or has suffered the effects of advanced periodontal disease or extensive decay, it may need to be extracted. This is especially common if you have a compromised immune system and the risk of infection could mean greater health risks. Often times neglect of proper hygiene routine can play a factor as well in an extraction situation. Extractions are a common procedure and are performed in the office with local anesthetic and proper instructions for after care.
