Unfortunately, there are many reasons why you may need an extraction. Some teeth are too diseased or damaged to save. There are also times when teeth need to be removed because the mouth is too crowded to house all of the teeth.

After completing an examination with x-rays, Dr. French will go through all of your options so you can make the right decision for you and your mouth.

Before Dr. French extracts a tooth, she will always numb the area. If you feel anxious at all about an extraction, remember that Dr. French also offers oral or IV sedation so that you will remain completely comfortable during the procedure.

In addition, if you do require an extraction, Dr. French will take the time to go over with you the different ways that you can replace your missing tooth or teeth.
