Once your permanent teeth have all erupted, it is sometimes necessary to extract (pull) one or more teeth to maintain oral health. Extraction is our last resort in maintaining your oral health. If at all possible, the dentist will recommend an alternative treatment, such as root canal therapy, which will allow you to keep the tooth. However, if an extraction is necessary, you can rest assured that we will provide you with gentle, caring treatment. To learn more about how to avoid the necessity of an extraction, call Alamogordo Dental Group today.
