A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. There are many reasons why a tooth would need to be removed. They include:
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, are one of the most common teeth that are extracted. They are often extracted either before or after they come in. Often, wisdom teeth get stuck in the jaw and don’t come in. That is the most common scenario that ultimately leads to their removal. If they are not removed quickly, they can cause your gums to get irritated the gum, leading to pain and swelling.
