It is occasionally necessary to extract a permanent tooth. Before deciding to extract a tooth, it is important to have your case diagnosed by Dr. Stephenson.
All alternatives should be considered above tooth extraction. Dr. Stephenson may recommend tooth extraction for one of the following reasons:
- Cosmetic or orthodontic (braces) preparation
- Risk of infection
- Advanced decay or periodontal disease
In most cases, tooth extraction is our last resort to maintain your dental health. Please keep a proper oral hygiene routine at home and consistently attend your appointments with Dr. Stephenson to help prevent the necessity for tooth extractions.
