Sometimes, a tooth may be infected beyond saving with additional treatments. In this case, an extraction (removal) may be required in order to protect the adjacent teeth. Although pulling teeth sounds like a painful procedure, rest assured that we will provide you with an anesthetic so you’re as comfortable as possible during the procedure. Some temporary discomfort may occur after, but we can help manage the pain. The good news is that once this temporary discomfort is over with, you won’t feel anymore pain from infection.
