Normally when a tooth has become cracked or decayed, we can repair it with a restoration such as a crown or a filling. We’ll also do everything we can to preserve teeth that are threatened by gum disease and other kinds of infections. However, there are cases where Dr. Marable has no other choice but to remove a tooth (or multiple teeth) for the sake of your oral health.

A simple tooth instruction involves an instrument called an elevator. It helps loosen the tooth to the point where it can be taken gently out of the mouth with forceps. Certain teeth will need to be removed surgically. Some gum and bone tissue might need to be removed during the process so that we can access the actual tooth. Also, in some cases impacted teeth must be removed in sections instead of as a single piece.
