Tooth Extractions

What is an Extraction?

Extractions involve carefully removing the damaged tooth from the mouth. After healing (or sometimes immediately), there are several options for replacing this missing tooth. These include bridges, implants, partial dentures, etc. (Please click here for more info on Extractions.)

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is necessary when the pulp of the tooth, the soft tissue inside the root of the tooth, becomes inflamed or infected.
