Tooth extraction is the removing a tooth from its socket in the bone. If a tooth has been damaged by decay or broken, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, there is just too much damage for the tooth to be fixed and that is why dentist will need to extract the tooth.
Why might teeth need to be extracted?

Because the tooth is infected or abscessed
Because the tooth is very lose due to gum disease
