It is important to extract the infected tooth as soon as possible to avoid any further infection or bacteria spreading to neighboring teeth. To remove the tooth we will administer a local anesthesia.

However, preventative measures are taken to avoid pain. Once completed, we will clean the socket and minimize any bleeding. We will provide detailed instructions on the healing of the extraction site. We will also discuss replacement options like dental bridges, dentures, or dental implants. We will work with you to determine which option is best for your smile.
