There are several reasons that it may become necessary to have a tooth or teeth extracted.  Most common reasons are trauma or severe decay that leave the tooth too damaged to repair, and advanced periodontal disease.  A tooth that becomes infected, or abscessed, may require extraction if root canal therapy cannot be performed.  A patient may also need teeth extracted due to overcrowding in the mouth and teeth are removed to create more space, usually in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. Most of these conditions can be prevented and maintaining your teeth is a priority at Mainstream Dental, but if it is necessary to have a tooth extracted, Dr. Jeffrey Fortna can easily and painlessly perform the procedure.
