Why is Tooth Extraction Required?

The removal of teeth (extraction of teeth) may be required for a number of reasons. This may include decay, periodontal disease, but may also be required as part of your orthodontic treatment. Your dentist or orthodontist will likely refer you to Kelowna Oral & Facial Surgery to discuss the extraction of these teeth under the appropriate anesthetic. Depending on the circumstances, your dentist or orthodontist may ask Dr. Martyna to discuss treatment options for the replacement of these teeth.
