When a tooth is in pain, not restorable, or potentially problem causing, it will be extracted. Extractions are usually done under local anesthesia. If an implant is used to replace the tooth, a bone graft will usually be placed in the extraction site to preserve the bone.
Extractions are usually a last resort, not first choice. We will do everything we can to save and preserve the tooth before resorting to extraction.
Dr. Zhu provides wisdom teeth extractions. Her technique is known to minimize trauma and ease healing.
