You may need a tooth extraction for several reasons, and Crown and Denture Solutions' dentist, Dr. Haygood, will thoroughly explain all scenarios and tooth extraction options to you. Sometimes a tooth becomes severely decayed and cannot be saved with a root canal or dental crown. Extremely decayed teeth will become more painful and spread the infection to other areas, so your Crown and Denture Solutions dentist must extract them. A tooth may have a severe crack that will inevitably lead to decay, so you are faced with the decision of extracting the tooth now or later when it becomes more painful and the infection more widespread. Dr. Haygood also extracts teeth that are poorly positioned and slowly shoving or twisting the rest of your teeth out of alignment.
