At Muse Dental Studio, we will do everything we can to save your natural tooth, but sometimes it is not possible. When a tooth is beyond repair, we will recommend a tooth extraction. An extraction is when the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root, needs to be removed. There can be a number of reasons we may recommend an extraction such as severe decay, gum disease or facial trauma. An extraction may also be necessary for a patient who is starting on a medical journey where optimal oral health is required, such as a stem cell replacement or transplant, organ transplant, or certain chemotherapy treatments. No matter the reason, we know that a tooth extraction can be upsetting. We will do everything we can to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed during the treatment.
