Safe Tooth-Removal With Dr. McCoy
Although we do everything we can to prevent it, there are certain situations when removing a damaged tooth is the best option for your health. There are a variety of reasons why you may need to have a tooth extracted, but some of the most common include:
- Extensive damage due to decay
- Severe physical trauma caused by an accident or a blow to the head
- When a primary tooth fails to come out on its own
- An impacted wisdom tooth
No matter the cause, Dr. McCoy and our team will gently remove the affected tooth, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout the process.
How an Extraction Can Help
Extracting a tooth is never ideal, but there are certain situations where you can benefit from it. For example, if your tooth is severely decayed, getting it removed will prevent the infection from spreading and causing further issues.
In cases like these, removing your tooth actually protects you from further health issues in the future. This saves you time and money in the long run, in addition to helping you avoid painful conditions.
