Why We Might Remove a Tooth
It has a cavity that is too large to be repaired with a crown or filling.
The enamel is so damaged or weak that it cannot support a restoration.
An infection has attacked the bone supporting the tooth, making it impossible for the tooth to stay in place.
A primary (baby) tooth is impeding the development of an incoming permanent tooth.
We must create room for either a denture or future orthodontic treatment.
After an extraction, it is normal for a patient to experience some soreness around the treatment site for a few days. However, they can expect to resume their normal diet and daily activities within a week.
