Modern dentistry has given us many ways to restore damaged and failing teeth. With advanced dental equipment and skilled dental techniques, Dr. C has been able to restore many injured smiles. However, there comes a point when some teeth can no longer be restored with a filling or even a root canal. It may be so badly decayed or infected that a tooth extraction is all there is left to do to prevent the spread of infection to other teeth.
Common reasons for extractions include conditions like:
- Abscessed teeth
- Severe dental decay
- Orthodontic concerns
- Gum disease
- Full mouth rehabilitation
