Tooth Extractions: Tips And Advice To Help With The Process

At Geoffry E. Hallstead, DMD, we try every treatment we can to save your natural teeth, but unfortunately, it is not always possible, and a tooth may need to be extracted. Some patients, such as those going through chemotherapy or preparing for an organ transplant, may need an extraction to optimize their oral health for a successful medical treatment. Our younger patients may need to have one or more teeth removed before starting orthodontic treatment or to help the adult teeth emerge properly. Sometimes, we recommend extracting severely decayed teeth that are beginning to affect the surrounding teeth and gums. No matter the reason for the extraction, we are here to help you every step of the way.
