Dr. Nancy Perez-Medina takes a conservative approach that focuses on saving your natural teeth whenever possible. Even the best replacements do not compare to a healthy set of natural teeth. But sometimes when a tooth is too far gone it is best for the health of the mouth to remove it. Periodontal disease, infection, and badly damaged teeth are just some of the reasons for extraction. Trust your teeth to Dr. Perez-Medina, a diplomate of the Board of American Periodontics with more than 25 years in practice.
Dr. Perez-Medina’s experience and training equip her to effectively evaluate when an extraction is called for. Today, we offer a number of effective procedures that result in many more teeth being saved than in the past. Even teeth with advanced forms of gum disease can often be saved and treated with laser gum surgery or other procedures rather than pulled. We would be pleased to offer second opinions, and we also provide a number of sedation options so if you do need an extraction, your procedure can be comfortable and anxiety-free.
When gum disease is caught early enough and treated by a skilled periodontist like Dr. Perez-Medina, tooth extractions are rarely necessary. If you experience bleeding gums, gum recession, or sensitivity to hot and cold, schedule a consultation with Dr. Perez-Medina to keep gum disease from putting your teeth at risk.
