THE POINT OF TOOTH EXTRACTIONS
A tooth extraction is typically a last resort when it comes to dental issues. However, some problems that typical restorative treatment cannot address may call for an extraction. A broken or partially erupted tooth that is frequently infected, severe misalignment that obstructs prosthesis such as dentures, or a deciduous—also called baby tooth—that is obstructing an adult tooth from replacing it are all examples of reasons for tooth extraction. With a dedication to informed patient decisions, we will give you all of the options available for your oral health concerns.
A tooth extraction is simply a procedure that removes the tooth from the mouth. To extract a tooth, Dr. Jones or Dr. Harris must first numb the tooth and area around your tooth so that you feel no discomfort. With assistance from our highly trained and experienced dental assistants, Dr. Jones or Dr. Harris will then carefully remove the problematic tooth.
