You might think extracting a tooth goes against the goal of a restorative procedure, and it’s true that it is somewhat counterintuitive to remove a tooth in order to restore function. Dr. Kristi Alexander is committed to doing everything possible to save a natural tooth, but in some cases it is in the best interest of the patient to completely remove it. Examples of such instances are tooth decay that has progressed too far to reverse or in preparation for dentures or orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Alexander is very gentle and skilled at tooth extraction, and at her Fair Oaks, CA office, it is a relatively simple and quick procedure. For tooth extractions in the Fair Oaks areas, contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kristi Alexander.
