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:
