Dr. Schames prefers to preserve your natural teeth when possible. However, extractions are necessary when decay has made the tooth unsalvageable or when you have an advanced periodontal disease. Depending on which tooth is removed, we can offer you a replacement in the form of a dental implant or oral prosthetic.
