While preserving your natural teeth is always a priority, badly decayed or damaged teeth are sometimes beyond saving.
If it is necessary, Dr. Christopher Laing can perform a tooth extraction at our Tallahassee, FL, office to restore the health of your smile.
So how can an extraction benefit your smile?
When is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Saving Your Smile
Removing a severely decayed or damaged tooth can have benefits for both the health and appearance of your smile and allow you to receive necessary restorative treatments.
Both infected and impacted teeth can cause serious discomfort. Extracting the affected tooth can provide relief from pain and protect against other serious oral health issues.
Preparing for Orthodontics
In some cases, Dr. Laing will need to extract teeth before you can begin orthodontic treatment. In these cases, a tooth extraction can help you achieve a more symmetrical smile.
