Unfortunately, there are times when a tooth needs to be extracted, leaving an unsightly gap in the front or back of your mouth. A tooth extraction is when a tooth is removed or pulled out. Common reasons for tooth extraction include crowded teeth, severe infection, or trauma to the tooth and gums following an accident. While a tooth extraction is a last resort, it can be unavoidable at times. Cosmetically, it can be embarrassing going about your daily life missing a tooth, especially if it is near the front of your mouth. Structurally, it can lead to further dental complications in regards to your oral health. No matter the location, it is equally important to visit our office to discuss replacement options.
