At Today’s Dental Comfort, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth. Unfortunately, however, that is not always possible. In these circumstances, we recommend a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction is the process of removing the entire tooth structure, including the root, from the mouth. A tooth extraction can bring forth a variety of emotions from patients. Aside from the common feelings of sadness and disappointment, many patients also feel uncertain and nervous about the process and the recovery.
