Tooth Extractions An Overview
A tooth extraction may need to be performed for a vast number of reasons. In most cases, a tooth extraction is performed on excessively damaged, decayed, impacted or compromised teeth. The goal of the tooth extraction is to restore health to the natural smile.

Why Is A Tooth Extraction Performed
As noted, a tooth extraction is performed for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common are:
- Severe Tooth Decay: In advanced cases of tooth decay, a tooth extraction may be the only form of treatment. If the tooth cannot be saved, we will perform a tooth extraction. We offer a complete range of tooth replacement solutions to help stabilize your smile.
- Overcrowding: Overcrowding can lead to a misaligned bite, crooked teeth, and jaw pain. Extracting overcrowded teeth bring much-needed relief and improve the overall function and quality of your natural smile.
- Impacted Wisdom Teeth: In most cases, wisdom teeth will need to be removed if they are impacted, prone to infection, or if they lead to overcrowding. Impacted wisdom teeth can have detrimental effects on your oral health. Drs. Garpetti and Hyder offer wisdom teeth removal in our Boise, ID dentist office.
- Periodontal Disease: For patients with an advanced form of gum disease, the function and health of the teeth may be compromised.
