Tooth Extractions

If a tooth is extremely decayed or has been damaged due to trauma, it may be necessary for extraction, followed by an implant. Although preserve teeth is ideal, as well as, take care of your natural teeth in the best possible way, in some cases, extraction is the best option.

Our dentists will assess carefully and guide you to make a well-informed decision. Natural teeth as well as other parts of the body are essential, but sometimes bad teeth can deteriorate your entire mouth health and damage your quality of life.

Furthermore, a missing tooth needs to be replaced with an implant as the nearby teeth can start shifting from their normal position leading to chew and bite problems, deterioration of your appearance and provoking bone loss or bone resorption.
