Dr. Friedland does everything possible to prevent the need for removing teeth outright. Instead, he focuses on conserving your current teeth through restorative treatments like fillings, crowns, and root canal therapy. However, there are instances where a tooth is so damaged that not only is it not salvageable, but it can actually cause harm to neighboring teeth as well. If this is the case for your tooth, he’ll make sure that tooth extractions in Pembroke Pines are comfortable every step of the way. If you need to have a tooth removed, call his dental office today!
While extracting a tooth is always considered to be a last resort, there are many instances where it may be necessary. For example, if a tooth is severely decayed and cannot be restored, an extraction is most appropriate. If gum disease is severely advanced, teeth may no longer be able to remain secured in the mouth. If you experience a serious oral injury or erupting teeth are causing harm to your existing smile, extractions may also be performed.
