Teeth can fail for a variety of reasons including tooth decay, dental crowding, injuries, and other oral health problems. If the health of failing teeth cannot be restored through fillings, root canals, and other procedures, tooth extraction is the only option. Many times it becomes necessary to remove teeth to preserve the health of the rest of the mouth. If you are in need of a tooth extraction, please contact our office in Conway, AR, to schedule an appointment.
Some of the most common reasons a tooth requires extraction are
- Gum disease
- Extreme tooth decay
- Fractures or other injuries
- Dental crowding
- To make room for implants or dentures
