No one likes the idea of tooth removal. Unfortunately, things happen in life including accidents, disease, and more that force us into the dentist to have broken or damaged teeth repaired or removed and replaced with cosmetic options. In this article, our goal is to explain tooth removal in simple to understand language as well as provide some tips on what to do to help post treatment.
If you have a damaged tooth (or teeth), either by accident or decay, Dr. Abeyta will do everything possible to fix it with a filling, crown, or other treatment. Sometimes, the damage cannot be repaired and the tooth must be removed from its socket in the bone — It is not as bad as that sounds!
There are several types and methods of extraction.

So now that you know more about tooth removal, you should take every effort to maintain the teeth you have by proper brushing and flossing, regular dentist visits, and making sure you stay away from accidents as much as possible!
