While tooth extraction is avoided when possible, extraction may be the best option for improving oral health in certain situations. Our Columbia dentist, Dr. Humphries, may recommend tooth extraction if:

  • A large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone has been destroyed by infection
  • Overcrowding leaves too little space for all the teeth
  • The tooth is significantly decayed

Tooth extraction can help prevent infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth. At Tony L. Humphries DMD PA, we work to ensure that all services, including tooth extraction, are painless and comfortable. If you are experiencing tooth pain, please call our office today to begin improving your oral health!
