In some cases, a tooth may need to be pulled. Whether it’s a baby tooth that won’t come out on its own, or a decaying tooth that is causing problems to the teeth around it, an extraction may be what the dentist recommends. The dentist can discuss options if you need to remove a permanent tooth. Replacing the tooth with a bridge or an implant could be an option your dentist recommends.
If an extraction is necessary, the dentist will make an appointment to extract the tooth. We offer oral and nitrous sedation to make sure you are completely comfortable during the entire process. Once you’re completely comfortable, the dentist will carefully remove your tooth. An extraction can really make the difference for the rest of your teeth. In the case of pulling a baby tooth, it can allow the permanent tooth to grow in properly. In the case of extracting a decaying tooth, it can save your surrounding teeth from decay and cavities.
