When Is Oral Surgery Needed?
Advancements in modern dentistry have made the preservation of your natural teeth a primary goal. Not only is this more desirable, but it is also possible in many situations. At some point, extraction of a tooth may be the only option available. When this occurs, every effort is made to use training and technology to make the extraction as painless as possible.
Your dentist will use x-rays to have a full picture of the situation. He will want to know about the alignment of your jaw, the positioning of your teeth, and the condition of the supporting bone tissue.
Sometimes a tooth needs to be removed in order to preserve your oral health. Many extractions can be performed right here at Canyon Crest Dental.
