Once you understand your options and have decided to have the tooth extracted we are here to make your visit as comfortable as possible. If you are anxious or scared, we offer various alternatives to help you through your treatment
Orthodontic extractions are necessary when the space needed for having straight teeth is significantly affected by small bone length.
