Extractions

Keep disease from spreading with tooth extractions from your local Lafayette, LA dentist office

Sometimes it is necessary to extract a tooth. This can happen because a tooth is severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

To reduce any anxiety and insure patient comfort, whenever a tooth extraction is necessary, the procedure, the post-surgical instructions, as well as any restorative follow-up care will be carefully and completely explained.
