At Westwood & Starwood Dental performing a tooth extraction would be the last recommendation after all possible treatment options have been attempted to save the tooth. Trauma, severe tooth decay or excessive bone loss due to periodontal disease are some of the reasons the dentist may decide to extract the tooth. It may be necessary to preserve the health of the surrounding teeth and the patient's dental health.
