Tooth removal is never a pleasant experience but unfortunately there are times when we cannot restore a tooth to its natural form and extraction is the only option. This may be due to a large amount of tooth decay, severe gum disease or a very badly broken or cracked tooth. Often extractions may be planned as part of a treatment plan in order to prepare for placement of implants, bridges, braces or provision of dentures. We will always discuss tooth removal with you and prepare you as best as possible for the procedure in order to make you as comfortable as possible.
