When it comes to a Tooth Extraction, Time is of the Essence

Tooth ExtractionWhen a tooth has suffered trauma, excessive disease or extreme tooth decay and the infection in the tooth threatens to spread to other parts of the mouth, fillings or even root canals may no longer be a possibility. A tooth extraction may be necessary. And time is of the essence. So ditch that “wait and see” approach and schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Depending on the circumstances, putting off your dental visit could make the situation worse.

Don’t risk your health; visit your dentist as soon as possible. He/she will be able to diagnose the problem and provide the best course of action. And if the best course of action is a tooth extraction, don’t worry. This isn’t the 17th century. A tooth extraction is a pain free procedure (thank you anesthetic) out-patient procedure. You will be back to your normal self before you know it.
