Important Information About Tooth Extractions

At Vargas Dental Associates, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth. Unfortunately, even with our best efforts, it is not always possible. This is when a tooth extraction is required. A tooth extraction is when the entire tooth — the structure and the tooth root — is removed from your mouth. A tooth extraction may be recommended due to decay or injury and may also be suggested to patients who may be starting a complicated medical treatment and optimal oral health is required, including patients who are starting certain chemotherapy treatments, a stem cell replacement or transplant, or organ transplant.
