There are many reasons for teeth to be extracted in adulthood: excess decay, fractures, infections, wisdom teeth, and for orthodontic reasons.
If your dentist finds a tooth that is damaged extensively, either as a result of tooth decay or trauma, then it may be appropriate to remove the tooth.
The dentist may decide to refer you for extractions to an oral surgeon in certain circumstances
