  • When a tooth is cracked or broken and can not be maintained with treatments such as restorations and veneers. 
  • If in orthodontic treatment of teeth, there is not enough space for the teeth to be placed in the jaw. 
  • If the wisdom tooth has not fully grown, has decayed, has grown in the wrong direction, has become infected, and has damaged the tooth next to it, it should be removed.
  • If a person has a disease of the gums and tissues that support the teeth, the teeth may not be maintainable; In such cases, the tooth must be extracted.

Methods of Tooth Extraction in Iran

Tooth extraction in Iran is done through two techniques: simple and surgical. The following is a description of each of these methods:

Iranian dentists have studied in the top universities in the country. They have sufficient knowledge and skills in the field of tooth extraction and are highly experienced in treating or removing severely damaged teeth. Also, the cost of all dental treatments, including tooth extraction, is much lower in Iran compared to other countries. This has made Iran a suitable country for receiving dental treatments. Every year many people from other countries come to this country to receive treatment.

When is Tooth Extraction Not Necessary?

Teeth that have a large amount of tissue left are not suitable for extraction. Such teeth can be maintained with other treatments such as restorations and veneers. Note that no dental treatment has been able to completely restore natural teeth, therefore, preserving the teeth is always a priority.

  • You need to have a medical image of your tooth before extracting it.
