Sometimes a tooth cannot be saved by a traditional dental restoration, such as a dental filling or dental crown. If this happens, our dentist may suggest a tooth extraction to prevent damage or infection to surrounding teeth. Dr. Yoan Suarez will discuss treatment options with you before the tooth is removed and offer different replacement alternatives if you decide to have the problem tooth extracted.
