At Fulp Family Dentistry we always make every attempt to treat your teeth and remedy any dental malady. Unfortunately, in some cases damage to teeth is in so advanced a stage that it may be necessary to extract the tooth in order to maintain dental health.
If a tooth is broken, cracked or extensively decayed it may be necessary to remove it. Likewise, a tooth that is associated with advanced stages of periodontal disease should be removed, as well as teeth that are poorly positioned or non-functional.
Whatever the cause, you can rest assured that we will carefully explore and inform you to any other options before making the decision to remove a tooth. Should tooth extractions become necessary, you are assured nurturing care that comes with the procedure of extracting a tooth. We understand that the process of having a tooth extracted can be daunting and make every attempt to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.
