While tooth extractions are always considered to be a last resort for Dr. Cabansag, she’s happy to perform them if they are absolutely necessary. In some cases, a tooth need to be removed if it puts your oral health at risk, and keeping your smile healthy is her number one priority. We’ll always take the time to walk you through the treatment process, recommend sedation dentistry if needed, and make sure you know the right aftercare tips. If you want all of these benefits and more, call our office if you need an extraction performed!
Tooth extractions are largely performed only if a tooth cannot be saved through any form of restorative dentistry. For example, if a tooth is damaged by severe decay that was caught late and a crown or root canal therapy cannot save it, we will need to extract it. Additionally, if the tooth has been knocked-out or severely knocked loose, it may not be able to be reimplanted. We’ll go over all of your options ahead of time and never assume that a tooth must be extracted outright.
