The conservative approach is always considered first and foremost; nothing is better for your oral health than keeping your natural teeth.

There are many scenarios in which a tooth extraction is the only feasible solution. These situations include:
Coco Dental makes an effort to use the most advanced and reliable dental tools and technologies to remove teeth safely and effectively. After your tooth removal, we’ll go over your tooth replacement options if needed.
Dr. Patel takes every step possible to confirm if a tooth extraction is necessary or not before beginning treatment. This includes capturing your mouth’s underlying structures via a digital x-ray, then going from there. X-rays make it easier to determine how difficult treatment will be as well as improve predictability and outcome. Before the extraction, we’ll anesthetized the tooth so that you feel no discomfort. This is followed by gently removing the tooth from the periodontal ligament holding it in place and removing it via a pair of dental forceps.
