Dr. Joshi, dentist in Chino, carefully evaluates every patient’s situation to see if a tooth extraction is the right choice for them. She works closely with you to find the best solution for helping you keep your smile safe and healthy.
What Is Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extraction is a quick surgical procedure to remove teeth that pose a risk to your overall health. While we always use tooth removal as a last resort, there are many situations where one or more teeth can cause problems if left in.
The most common type of tooth extraction is wisdom teeth removal, but there is a range of other reasons for this procedure. Patients who have severe infections or significant damage might have the best outcome by removing a tooth. We also provide several tooth replacement options, so you do not need to worry about gaps in your smile for long!

Should I Have a Tooth Extraction?
Below are a few key signs that it might be time to take that problematic tooth out:
- The tooth has become severely infected (e.g., severe periodontal disease).
- Your tooth has been damaged beyond repairing it with a crown or bonding (e.g., significant portions have broken off).
- You notice continued pain after a root canal or other restorative treatment.
- A tooth is causing significant crowding or misalignment of other teeth either before or after orthodontic treatment.
