In some situations, Dr. Zanger, Dr. Wathen, and Dr. Taylor may recommend a tooth extraction to help preserve your oral health. Tooth extractions are most commonly performed if a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, if there isn’t enough room for all of your teeth, or if a large portion of the tooth or supporting bone has been destroyed by infection. Wisdom teeth are also often removed because there is not enough room for them to erupt properly and may cause severe dental problems if they are not extracted. If you require a tooth extraction, our dentists and dental team will ensure that your treatment at First Care Dental is pleasant and painless.
