In some cases, a tooth can become severely damaged and may need to be removed. Frequently, the severe damage to the tooth results in a significant amount of pain. There is no need to suffer, and prompt extraction of an infected tooth helps to prevent the infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth.
Prior to removing a tooth, Dr. Lowery will give you a local anesthetic to the area surrounding the tooth. The team at Nice Smile Family Dental always wants to be sure that you’re as comfortable as possible while performing any dental procedure.
Once the tooth is removed, a dental bridge can be used as a replacement for the missing tooth.
