If you have an abscess, or tooth infection, a tooth extraction may be necessary.
Emergency Dental Care USA in Portland, OR usually advocates for repairing and saving a tooth whenever possible. This includes performing a root canal or placing a crown. However sometimes that’s not possible, and the best course of action is to pull a tooth. If a tooth extraction is needed, our emergency dentists can expertly remove your tooth and keep you comfortable during the process using local anesthetics and attentive care.
If a tooth or teeth need to be removed but aren’t easily reached by the emergency dentist, a surgical extraction may be necessary. Like normal tooth extractions, we make sure to keep you comfortable and send you home with post-operative instructions to help you recover quickly.
