Whenever possible, you want your teeth to last a lifetime. However, even with meticulous dental hygiene and preventive dental care, this is not always possible. Disease, trauma and other factors can lead to severe damage to teeth that is not always treatable. At Buford Family Dental, we always do our best to treat and save damaged teeth; but when it is not possible, we offer gentle tooth extractions to remove the diseased tooth.
Many dental health problems can be treated. Even a severely infected or broken tooth can often be fixed with a root canal or tooth repair. However, if a tooth is no longer viable, it can pose a health risk and should be removed. This can happen when the tooth structure is damaged down to the root or other serious tooth maladies make it impossible to restore the tooth health. Tooth extractions are always considered the last resort, and only recommended if it is in the best interest of our patient’s health.
