Tooth Extractions at El Portal Dental Group
Dentists determine tooth extractions necessary for a number of reasons. Some teeth need to be extracted due to decay or periodontal disease or because they are simply broken beyond repair. In other cases, teeth may need to be removed to prepare for treatment or to make room in the mouth due to their crowded positioning.
Often if a tooth is in need of extracting, our dentists will discuss replacement options to help with chewing, shifting teeth, and the overall function and comfort of your teeth.
