The main goal of dentistry is to preserve your natural teeth and keep them healthy for as long as possible.
There are times, however, when it is in your best interest (or your child’s) to have a tooth extracted (removed). This could be the case for a variety of reasons.
The most common reason for tooth extraction is when a tooth is too badly damaged by decay or trauma to be saved or repaired.
Tooth extraction is nothing to be feared when done by an experienced hand. For a simple extraction, we will first apply a local anesthetic to prevent pain and discomfort. By following our tooth extraction aftercare suggestions and guidance, all should be back to normal within a few days.
