Tooth Extractions

There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out as it should, and the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt. At other times, a tooth may have an infection, or is recommended to be removed for orthodontic correction.

While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share with the doctor any concerns or preferences for sedation.
