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.
Our on-staff oral surgeon, Dr. Raza Hussain, is a gentle and caring surgeon who provides a wide range of oral surgery services.
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.
