I do the majority of my extractions. I don't do wisdom teeth removal. On rare occasions, I refer out another tooth; I do know my limitations. I've extracted literally thousands of teeth in my career. I'm very comfortable in extracting the majority of the teeth that need coming out.
A lot of times, it's a result of neglect and the decay has extended to the point where you just can't save the tooth, even if you wanted to. There's just not enough there to save either with a root canal or a crown. A lot of times, it's finances. A patient, unfortunately, can't afford the root canal or the crown, and we have to pull the tooth because if it's infected, you just can't ignore it and let it sit there. Something has to be done, and extracting a tooth will solve that issue.
