Tooth Removal Services With A Portland Dentist
Your Portland dentist wants you to have a long-lasting natural smile, but in some instances, an extraction may be the best course of action for your overall health. At Brookside Dental in Clackamas and Gresham, we don’t just care about your oral health, we take a holistic approach to dentistry and care about your overall wellness. In rare instances, an infected tooth may threaten your overall health and the health of your other teeth. Under these circumstances, your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction.
What is a Tooth Extraction?
A tooth extraction is a procedure that involves a natural tooth removal. Sometimes when a tooth becomes severely infected, the infection can threaten to spread to your other teeth. In other instances, an infected tooth can cause serious health problems if the infection manages to spread to the patient’s bloodstream. To protect your overall health and wellness, we extract the infected tooth early and prevent serious dental problems from developing.
