Many times when dentists talk about extractions, they’re referring to impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause discomfort, inflammation, infection, and even decay as they come into the mouth and push against other teeth. In cases like this, extraction will be the only viable option.

But when it comes to teeth other than your wisdom teeth, performing a tooth extraction is something that Fairhaven Dental would consider only after doing everything else possible to save the tooth, including root canal therapy. We can help remove the tooth to preserve the health of the teeth surrounding it, as well as your entire mouth.
