You and Dr. Audrey Sim may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications, in most cases Dr. Audrey Sim will discuss alternatives to extractions as well replacement of the extracted tooth.
Dr. Audrey Sim is a highly experienced local dentist who performs gentle tooth extractions offering nitrous oxide to ensure extrations are painless. She makes sure you and your family won’t have to experience pain or discomfort during these procedures.
