Tooth Extractions

You and Dr. Cunningham may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

If you are interested in replacing your missing tooth with either a dental bridge or a dental implant, make sure you discuss this with Dr. Cunningham prior to your extraction so that any necessary preparations can be completed before the tooth is removed.
