When a cavity or fracture cannot be repaired, usually the tooth must be extracted. An extraction may also be necessary if there is severe bone loss around a tooth. If the problem tooth is not removed as recommended, it could cause a painful abscess.
If you require a dental extraction, you should first make a consultation appointment with one of our professionals to evaluate your condition and take the necessary x-rays. At this point, the dentist may prescribe an antibiotic or analgesic if necessary. Next, a follow-up appointment can be booked for the extraction.
