Extraction might be needed due to the following condition: Caries (cavity), Periapical abscess, Infected tooth, Periodontitis (bone loss around a tooth), Cracked or fractured tooth, and Orthodontic treatment. At Pacific NW Dentistry, we always advised that extraction should be your last option.
Dr. Banh has done many surgical extractions throughout his careers at his practice, community clinics, and outreach programs. He also does wisdom tooth extractions. When he extracts teeth, he always strive to do it as atraumatic as possible preserving as much bone as possible. This decreases pain and healing time.
