While make every effort to preserve your natural teeth, sometimes extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have advanced periodontal disease. When a tooth is malformed, damaged, impacted or ingrown, different procedures are used, but all extractions are considered surgery.
Although we may initially attempt to restore or preserve a patient’s natural tooth, instances of advanced decay or a significant injury or trauma can render the tooth unsalvageable.
Root Canal Therapy is also worth considering for treatment and repair of a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted due to decay.
