Having a tooth extraction is not the most pleasant dental procedure, however sometimes it is necessary. Centennial dental extractions are used for young patients who are experiencing crowding issues if their baby teeth are still intact. These extractions are performed to give adult teeth the space they need to grow in properly. In adulthood extractions are performed on teeth that have been damaged or decayed beyond repair. Extractions are also commonly performed on wisdom teeth. Many people don’t have the space for wisdom teeth and these teeth can even be extracted when they are impacted.
