Extractions are needed when a tooth is decayed to the nerve. In some cases a root canal can be done to save the tooth rather than have the tooth extracted. Extractions are also necessary to remove wisdom teeth, which are the last teeth to develop in the mouth usually around age 16. Sometimes these teeth become impacted and will need to be extracted, other times they can be left to develop and be removed when and if necessary.
