When you visit Balboa Dental Care, Dr. Stragier may recommend tooth extraction for certain severe cases. By removing a tooth that is significantly injured, decayed, or infected, you can begin to improve your oral health. Your caring dentist may suggest tooth extraction for the following cases:
- A tooth that is severely decayed
- A large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone has been destroyed by infection
- Overcrowding leaves too little space for all of the teeth
One benefit of tooth extraction is that it can prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. Your San Diego dentist may also recommend tooth extraction for wisdom teeth if there is not enough room in the mouth for them to properly erupt. Our dental team works hard to make sure that each dental treatment is painless, so you can be certain that you will be comfortable at our office. Please contact us today to schedule your consultation!
