Tooth extractions can be a slightly uncomfortable and necessary experience at a local cosmetic dentist office. Even if you brush and floss your teeth regularly, your dentist might find that an extraction is needed to maximize your health. Teeth removal can occur for a variety of reasons. You may not always be able to control the reasons behind the removal. Extractions don’t always cause pain. In fact, modern dentistry has removed most of the pain and discomfort associated with extractions.
