When restoration procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not enough to save a tooth, it may need to be removed, or extracted. Unfortunately, not all teeth can be saved. In certain circumstances a tooth may have to be removed not only for the relief of pain and discomfort but the overall health of the patient. Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before, thanks to powerful anesthetics and sedatives. In many cases, a patient who has tooth removed, experiences little or no discomfort, and only minor bleeding. We take our time to remove the damaged tooth as carefully as possible to ensure that the patient is comfortable during the procedure, but also to ensure we can replace the extracted tooth in the future.
