While every effort is made to conserve and preserve your natural teeth, there are some cases in which a tooth or teeth may need to be extracted. A simple extraction removes a tooth that is visible above the gumline. This is normally used for a tooth that is damaged or decayed beyond repair. A surgical extraction removes a tooth that has not erupted above the gumline. Surgical extractions are most commonly done to remove the wisdom teeth and impacted teeth that do not have enough room to fit into your smile. No matter the reason for having a tooth extraction at our clinic Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, our team will treat you with the best care.
