At Del Vecchio Dentistry (Niagara Falls Dentist), tooth extraction is usually our last resort. If a tooth is damaged severely beyond repair, we might resort to its extraction, but we’ll also recommend a suitable restorative procedure to avoid the negative impacts of a missing tooth. Suffering from an impacted wisdom tooth is another scenario where we recommend tooth extraction. With no obvious benefits from wisdom teeth, they can sometimes cause more harm than be of use. Accordingly, in an attempt to save the surrounding molars and eliminate your pain, we usually resort to wisdom tooth extraction.
