While Dr. Her does everything he can to avoid extracting teeth, sometimes doing so is necessary if your overall oral health is at risk. Regardless of the reason for needing the extraction, our office works hard to create a comfortable and relaxing dental environment. We’ll always make sure you know exactly what to expect prior to your treatment and discuss your needs. To learn more about the process, feel free to give Dr. Her and the team at Lifetime Dental a call!
We do everything we can to save teeth via restorative procedures, but if a tooth is severely damaged by tooth decay or physical trauma, trying to restore the tooth can do more harm than good. Additionally, there are instances where teeth are actively interfering with your mouth’s other oral structures. If teeth become impacted, it means they are trapped underneath existing teeth, leading to infection underneath gum tissue. If you intend on pursuing orthodontic treatment or need a denture placed, we may also extract teeth if they interfere.
