Although permanent teeth were meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be needed. Your comfort is our greatest concern. Using modern techniques we can remove teeth comfortably. Common reasons for tooth loss include a tooth that is badly damaged from decay, trauma or infection from periodontal disease.
According to your level of comfort, most extractions can be performed here in our office using local anesthetic. We also refer our patients to an oral surgeon should they choose to be “asleep” during the procedure. This is a common request when wisdom teeth are removed.
