If a tooth becomes broken, cracked or extensively decayed, it may be necessary to remove it. Likewise, a tooth associated with advanced stages of periodontal disease should be removed, as well as teeth poorly positioned or non-functional.
Cumberland Valley Dental Care will carefully explore and inform of any other options before making the decision to remove a tooth. We understand that the process of having a tooth extracted can be daunting and make every attempt to keep you comfortable with nurturing care that comes with any CVDC procedure. Once the procedure is complete, post-operative instructions are given to the patient orally and in written form. At CVDC, we answer all questions before and after the appointment so that there is never any confusion on how to care for your extraction site.
