If you think you need a tooth extraction, contact our Virginia Beach dental office for a consultation with Dr. Brent Moses. The dentist will evaluate your condition and make recommendations for a full treatment plan.
Root Canal vs. Tooth Extraction
When you have tooth pain, it may seem like the best treatment is to have the tooth pulled. In most cases of, however, Dr. Moses will support the decision to preserve the natural tooth. For teeth with decay, this can be accomplished with root canal treatment, cracked or broken teeth can often be restored with a dental crown.
There are situations, however, where a tooth extraction is the best choice. In these cases, Dr. Moses will design a treatment plan to remove the tooth and replace it either with a dental implant, dental bridge or denture. It is important to replace missing teeth quickly to prevent supporting bone from deteriorating and remaining teeth from shifting.
