While we will do everything in our power to save a decayed or damaged tooth, sometimes it is beyond repair. In these cases, a tooth extraction is required. Some common conditions that require an extraction include:
- Risk of infection as a result of impaired immune system
- An infected tooth root
- Crowded teeth
We know that the idea of an extraction can be frightening, but rest assured that we have plenty of ways to keep you comfortable. Extractions are performed using local anesthetics, so you won’t feel a thing. If you experience anxiety about the procedure, talk to our dental team about other ways we can ease your mind and your pain.
