When a tooth is no longer able to be saved, it must be extracted. Removing an infected tooth is important to your health because the only way for the body to heal is to remove the source of the infection. Many patients will then replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. With this in mind, we often try to coordinate tooth extraction with local oral surgeons because they can begin preparing the site for an implant.
For non-established patients looking for an emergency extraction, our practice sees emergency patients as availability permits. If you feel that a tooth needs to be extracted immediately, we often recommend directly consulting with one of the three oral surgery practices located in Medford.
