At Arbour Lake Dental Care in Northwest (NW) Calgary, we may recommend a tooth extraction if you have an infection that is negatively affecting the condition of your oral health.
Why do I need a tooth extraction?
If your tooth has an infection that is damaging the bone, or is causing you pain or discomfort, the only option may be tooth extraction.
Our first goal is to save the tooth, but if it is not possible, extraction can prevent further damage from infection. Once the extraction is complete, you then have the option of replacing your missing tooth/teeth.
Procedures such as dental implants and dental bridges are excellent choices for tooth replacement.
