Extractions: If all other options are not possible to save an infected or fractured tooth, an extraction will be recommended. We will help you determine if the tooth should be removed by an oral surgeon or by one of our general dentists. During the procedure, we will make sure you are comfortable and thoroughly numb. You will feel some slight pressure during the procedure, which is completely normal. After the procedure is completed, you will receive a list of instructions on how to take care of the extraction site.
