Do you suffer from severe tooth pain? If so, your tooth may be seriously damaged or infected. In some cases, a tooth must be extracted, or removed, in order to restore your smile to good health. Dr. Kim, Dr. Kim, and Dr. Jun may suggest tooth extraction if:
- A tooth is so badly decayed or injured that it cannot be effectively restored with a dental filling, crown, or other restoration
- Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- There are too many teeth in the mouth, causing overcrowding
We also offer wisdom teeth removal for patients whose wisdom teeth require extraction. You can rest assured that your kind dentists at Dong Won Kim Family Dental Care will not recommend tooth extraction unless it is truly the best option for restoring your oral health. Tooth extraction can prevent infection from spreading to other parts of your mouth and allow your smile to begin to heal. We are happy to discuss our tooth replacement options with you both before and after your tooth extraction in Lawrence, Massachusetts so that you can once again have a smile that is healthy, beautiful, and fully functional.
