Important Information About Tooth Extractions
Our main goal is to help you achieve the ultimate in dental health, and while that usually means that we try everything we can to save your teeth, there are times when it is just not possible. A tooth extraction could be needed for a number of reasons such as extreme dental decay, severe injury to the tooth, advanced periodontal disease, illness, or effects from medication. Children frequently need to have teeth extracted to make room for adult teeth to grow or before starting orthodontic treatment. A tooth extraction is when the entire tooth, including the root, is removed from the mouth.
