At Advanced Dentistry of Alhambra, we consider every option to help our patient preserve their natural teeth for life, but in some cases, a tooth can simply be too damaged or decayed to be saved. This is when we would recommend an extraction, and thanks to our team’s experience and gentle touch, we’re able to take the stress out of this potentially nerve-wracking procedure. And, if needed, we can help replace any extracted teeth without delay as well. With us, we make the entire process comfortable from beginning to end.
Typically, a tooth extraction is only used as a last resort once all other repair options have been exhausted. This usually happens when a tooth is so deeply decayed that can’t be accessed for a root canal, or broken to the point that it cannot be trusted to support a filling or crown.
