Why Do I Need Dental
Extractions in Santa Maria?
If a tooth is damaged, your dentist will evaluate whether it’s viable or not. A tooth that can be saved often requires treatment like root canal therapy, a build-up, and a crown.
Sometimes, though, the damage is too extensive, and the tooth needs to come out.
In some cases, the tooth itself may be healthy, but how it’s positioned in the jawbone adversely impacts the patient’s oral health. When this happens, we might recommend orthodontic treatment alone or an extraction coupled with orthodontic treatment.
