If a tooth has become badly damaged or infected and it cannot be fixed with root canal therapy, Dr. Merguerian may suggest an extraction. Signs that a tooth is infected are extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures and painful chewing. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment for a gentle tooth extraction.

do i need my wisdom teeth removed?
If a wisdom tooth is misaligned or is only partially erupted through the gums, it may need to be extracted. A misaligned wisdom tooth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, and create bigger problems down the road. If this is the case, Dr. Merguerian may suggest extracting your wisdom teeth to avoid future dental health issues.
