Extractions are performed for a variety of reasons including the following:

Severe tooth decay

Nerve damage / abscess

Root fracture

Orthodontic reasons

Problematic / impacted wisdom teeth

Severe gum disease


Simple Extractions

A simple extraction will be conducted under local anaesthetic and will require the use of instruments to grasp and elevate the tooth.
