Adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but sometimes due to crowding, decay, or trauma teeth may need to be extracted. Tooth Extractions are what many refer to as pulling a tooth.
Since removing a tooth is a serious procedure, we like to explore all of our options before deciding to extract a tooth. Some of those options may be fillings, root canal therapy, deep cleanings, or crowns. When it is necessary to extract a tooth, we then start to consider what to do to replace the tooth such as a partial, bridge and in some cases an implant.
Although tooth extractions can be difficult, they are not to be feared. Here at Valley Smiles, we do our best to have a pain free procedure and make you the most comfortable possible. If you are in pain and want to discuss your options please contact our team here at Valley Smiles.
