Our goal at Port Jefferson Smiles is to save your teeth whenever possible. Tooth extraction is a last resort and necessary procedure we perform in order to save your smile. Tooth extraction is a number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed or due to periodontal disease. Some tooth may be broken in a way that it can’t be repaired. Other teeth may be removed because they are poorly positioned, such as impacted tooth, or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. Regardless of the reason, we make sure that your tooth extraction is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
