Whenever possible, it is important to save your natural teeth with general dentistry. Even with incredible restorations like dental implants, your natural teeth are the best option for your oral health. However, not all teeth can be saved when they are broken or diseased. Plus, some teeth may pose a risk to your health. When a tooth extraction is necessary, our team at Curtis Family Dentistry offers a calm, relaxing environment with excellent dental care to remove your problem tooth. Many teeth that are infected, decayed or broken can be repaired. Dr. Curtis will always look at all options for treatment before recommending extraction. Root canals can save many teeth that in the past would have been removed, and dental crowns can restore many broken teeth. When the tooth is beyond repair or poses a risk to your health, Dr. Curtis and our dental team can carefully remove it with as little discomfort as possible.
