Should I just have my tooth pulled?

tooth extraction | dental emergency | gaithersburg If you have a painful or broken tooth, you might first consider having a dental extraction in our Gaithersburg dental office. There are a few reasons why you might decide to make a different choice once you speak to either Dr. Neil Daftary or Dr. Robert Zaner.

When Extractions are Necessary

When we recommend an extraction, we exhaust all other treatment options first. Removing a tooth causes a chain reaction of undesirable oral health problems such as bone loss and a misaligned bite.

Replacing a missing tooth is often more costly than saving the ones you have by performing root canal treatment and placing a dental crown or for restoring the comfort and functionality of a broken tooth. 

Sometimes painful wisdom teeth or overcrowding requires that we remove one or more teeth to improve your health. By staying on track with your regular dental exams and cleanings, we will alert you to any of these problems.
