Tooth Extraction, Ashford, Kent
A tooth extraction is the professional removal of a tooth. There are a number of reasons that may cause a patient to be advised a tooth extraction as a recommended course of action.
Problems that could lead to tooth extraction include tooth decay, gum disease, teeth that are broken or crowded, an abscess in the area surrounding the tooth, or impacted wisdom teeth. You may need one tooth or several teeth removed depending on the problem you are suffering from, and the severity of it.
