Unfortunately, sometimes permanent teeth become so damaged or decayed that they have to be extracted (pulled) so you can maintain optimal oral health. At McConnell and Woolf Family Dentistry, tooth extraction is often our last resort when trying to maintain your oral health. If at all possible, Dr. McConnell or Dr. Woolf will suggest another treatment, such as a root canal, so you can keep your natural tooth and maintain your oral health.
