The goal of modern Dentistry is to maintain our patients’ teeth the best we can. However, sometimes a tooth is just too far gone. This could be due to extensive decay, a broken or cracked tooth, gum disease, infection, or it could be for orthodontic reasons like braces or a wisdom tooth. During an extraction appointment, we make sure the tooth is nice and numb. You should not be feeling any pain, though you may feel pressure due to the tooth loosening.
If you are interested in having a new tooth put back in that spot, feel free to call us to book a consultation appointment so we can discuss the best way to proceed with that.
