Unfortunately, teeth that are badly broken down as a result of decay or trauma and those severely affected by gum diseases are hopeless and must be removed.
Extraction of such teeth helps to relieve the symptoms of pain and infection and gives the body an opportunity to heal.
Once extraction is considered or completed, if the teeth are absolutely vital for function and aesthetics, various options exist to replace them. We are glad to discuss these options with you and select the one that best suits you.
Dental extractions are minor surgical procedures and therefore when done in a clean environment, in a healthy individual and wound care instructions followed properly by the patient, healing should be uneventful.
