If a tooth is damaged beyond the ability to restore, either due to decay or a large fracture, or the tooth has lost too much of the bone support due to periodontal disease, the tooth will need to be extracted.  If extraction is needed, it’s important discuss treatment options for replacement of the tooth, as most procedures for restoration occur at the time of extraction for a more ideal result.  Our practice will be sure that all options are presented and discussed should this situation occur.
