If you have a severely damaged tooth that can’t be restored with other treatments, it may need to be removed. This might be the best option to keep any decay the tooth is suffering from spreading to your other teeth.
Depending on how complicated the procedure is, Dr. Min may either use a local anesthetic to numb the area or he may recommend a general anesthesia. Following either treatment, patients will be provided with post op care instructions to help you heal well.
Once a tooth is removed, it may be possible to replace it with a bridge or an implant. Please click here for information about those options.
