Teeth other than your wisdom teeth, that are severely damaged, may need to be removed. Teeth may need to be removed for a number of reasons, usually due to extensive decay, 'gum' disease, or trauma resulting in painful, abscessed and/or loose teeth.
A tooth extraction should be done as soon as possible to avoid the spread of infection and more serious problems. In cases in which a root canal treatment might not save the tooth, it may be recommended that the tooth be removed.
