3 Reasons You Might Need a Tooth Extracted

Pulling teeth is something many people dread having done at the dentist, but there are not many reasons that you would need to have teeth pulled. To help put your mind at ease, we have compiled a list of reasons that you may need to have one or more teeth pulled below.Lincoln Park Cosmetic Dentist

Additional Room

If your mouth is too crowded, your dentist might recommend having one or more teeth pulled to make some room. We use a special tool that allows us to gently rock the tooth back and forth until it is removed from the socket.


If you have an infection in your mouth or tooth, it is vital that we take care of it right away. Sometimes there is not another choice other than to remove the infected tooth to prevent the infection from spreading.

Wisdom Teeth

Another common reason that people have teeth pulled is that their wisdom teeth are coming in crooked or there is not enough room in the mouth.

If you do need to have teeth pulled, you can trust our team to take care of you. We will anesthetize the area in your mouth to decrease any discomfort. Call a Lincoln Park cosmetic dentist at (773) 348-0565 to schedule a consultation.
