Although tooth extraction is avoided when possible, tooth extraction may be the best method for restoring your oral health in certain cases. Drs. Risinger and Murphy, your experienced dentists, may recommend tooth extraction if:
- A tooth is severely damaged or decayed
- There is not enough room for all of the teeth in the mouth
- A large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone has been destroyed by infection
The third molars, also known as the wisdom teeth, often require extraction because there is not enough room in the mouth for them to erupt properly. Our dentists and dental team at Athens Advanced Dental will ensure that your tooth extraction is comfortable and painless. We invite you to contact our dental office in Athens, Texas today for more information on tooth extraction and to schedule your appointment.
