Most patients and dentists would agree on one thing, it’s always best to keep your natural teeth if at all possible.

Whatever the reason, tooth extraction is more often than not a very routine procedure

How straightforward this minor surgery is will depend on where the tooth to be extracted is located in the mouth. For example, a front tooth with a single straight root is easier to remove than a molar with multiple roots. This is especially true when that molar is a wisdom tooth that is impacted. Meaning it is below the surface surrounded by gum tissue and bone. Often, a wisdom tooth is blocked from fully erupting (growing in) by other teeth in its path.
