There are a handful of reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted: tooth decay, advanced gum disease, infection, a fractured tooth or an abscess. After careful examination, Dr. Henson will be able to decide if a simple tooth extraction will ease your discomfort. This examination will involve x-ray images to see where the tooth is positioned within the surrounding bone.
By means of a simple tooth extraction, your dentist can remove the affected tooth without major surgery. Dr. Henson will assess your situation to decide if you need a referral to an oral surgeon for additional measures.
