Extractions

Dentist McAllen

We do everything possible at Dr. Tijerina’s dental office to make removing a tooth the last option for treatment, rather than the first. After all, it’s always better to keep your natural tooth when possible. However, sometimes teeth can be so damaged that they actually put neighboring teeth at risk as well as your overall health. If that is the case, we’ll make sure that your future extraction is a complete and total success. Call our dental office to get started!

Why Do Teeth Need to be Extracted?

Teeth are typically removed because they have suffered a lot of damage that a dental filling, crown, or root canal cannot save. This is typically because of long-term tooth decay caused by unremoved plaque and tartar, but teeth may also need to be removed if they suffered a physical injury. If you play contact sports without a mouthguard, you’re far more likely to suffer from an oral injury that left your tooth damaged. In other cases, teeth may need to be removed to make room for orthodontic treatment or to place a denture.
