Sometimes a root canal or other restorative procedure cannot save a tooth that is, too severely decayed, damaged, or badly infected and a tooth extraction may be in the best interest of your oral health. Dr Judd is highly skilled in extraction procedures. With his extraction techniques and oral conscious sedation options, patients can remain relaxed and comfortable throughout their tooth extraction appointment. We understand that losing a tooth is not an ideal situation. However, if we suggest tooth removal, you can trust that it is necessary to protect your oral health and eliminate your discomfort. Following your extraction, we will review your options for tooth replacement to ensure that your smile appearance and chewing function is properly restored.
