About Tooth Extractions
A tooth extraction may be necessary for many reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced gum disease or are broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Finally, some teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for othodontic treatment.
At your consultation appointment, your specific situation will be discussed in greater detail. We encourage you to ask any questions you may have. If new questions arise after your consultation, please call our office at 479-636-3979 to speak with one of our patient care coordinators.
