Teeth extractions are a common dental procedure generally performed if a tooth has become badly decayed or infected; it is often the quickest route to resolve pain.
Extractions tend to be the last case scenario once all other options have been exhausted. Once a tooth is removed there is no going back, so it is important to consider the alternatives to an extraction and what you intend to do with the space.
Most tooth extractions are done by your dentist although more complex extractions may be done in hospital.
