Tooth extraction, or tooth removal, may be needed in order to improve the health of your smile. While we prevent the need for tooth extraction when possible, certain cases may make removing the tooth the best option for restoring your oral health. Our knowledgeable dentist, Dr. David Romisher, may recommend tooth extraction if:
- There is not enough room for all of the teeth in the mouth
- A tooth is severely damaged or decayed, making an effective restoration impossible
- A tooth is impacted (stuck in the gum tissue and jawbone)
- Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and surrounding bone structure
Our caring dental team will ensure that your tooth extraction in Merchantville, New Jersey is as painless and comfortable as possible; we strive to make each visit to our dental office a pleasant, enjoyable experience.
