The extraction of a tooth is a necessary step toward ensuring that your oral cavity remains the healthiest that it can be. Typically, if a tooth is broken or damaged by decay, we will attempt to fix it with such restorations as crowns or fillings. However, there are times when the damage can be too extensive for the natural tooth to be repaired. If this happens, the tooth will need to be extracted.
We will always discuss with you what you should and shouldn’t do prior to these appointments, and after, but reach out if there’s anything else you’d like to know.
