A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.

Reasons for extraction include: severe tooth decay or infection, extra teeth which are blocking other teeth from coming in, severe gum disease which may affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of teeth, preparation for orthodontic treatment, insufficient space for wisdom teeth.
