In certain circumstances, one or more permanent teeth may need to be extracted (pulled) to restore your oral health. These cases need to be properly diagnosed by a professional dentist such as Advanced Dental Concepts – any and all alternatives should be considered before deciding on tooth extraction. An extraction may be recommended for one or more of the following reasons:
- Infection or risk of infection
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Advanced decay
- Preparation for orthodontic treatment
When necessary to maintain optimal oral health, we also remove 3rd molar wisdom teeth which have erupted and do not have compromised root form. No matter which tooth (or teeth) needs to be extracted, all teeth extractions will be performed with the utmost care in our state-of-the-art dental practice. For more information on teeth extractions and how to avoid them, please call Advanced Dental Concepts in Hammond, LA today.
