Extraction is the removal of a tooth. Tooth removal may be necessary sometimes if an existing tooth cannot be restored optimally most commonly due to severe decay.

Also, removal of teeth is sometimes necessary if a patient requires it for orthodontic purposes or if there is not enough space in the jaw bone to accommodate wisdom teeth. An extraction can either be simple or surgical. A surgical extraction will be necessary when the surrounding bone has to be removed in order to remove the tooth or if the tooth has to be split into fragments in order to facilitate removal.
