A tooth extraction, more popularly known as having a tooth pulled, is when a dentist removes a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone. Tooth extraction is used as a last resort, often after other treatment options fail or will no longer correct the problem.
Dentists definitely want to fight damage to your smile. It’s what we’re all about! With regular general dental visits to Dr. Treva Lee in Fresno, California, you can hopefully avoid cavities, and even if a cavity develops, we can repair it early. But sometimes a cavity leaves your tooth root exposed to disease and infection, opening you up to possible tooth loss if the situation isn’t treated. That’s why we provide root canal therapy. With root canal therapy, we can help you keep your tooth by treating the infection.
