Just the term is enough to send a cold shiver down your spine. But the reality is that with today`s technology, patients often experience very little discomfort in the course of an extraction. There are several reasons why a tooth might need to be extracted. For example, some teeth may have too much decay to be saved by root canal therapy, there may not be enough tooth structure left to restore the tooth properly, or the tooth may be preventing another from erupting.
