A tooth extraction means having a tooth pulled. It involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. Some reasons why a tooth may need to be pulled include severe tooth damage, non-functioning teeth, certain orthodontic treatments and extra teeth.

In most cases, your dentist will consider every available option for saving your tooth before deciding that a tooth extraction is needed.
