You may need a tooth extraction of any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed. Others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
