When significant damage or decay is present in the mouth, sometimes an extraction is the best option. Dr. Dillon usually recommends extraction if root canal therapy is unable to save a tooth affected by:

  • Severe periodontal (gum) disease
  • Impaction
  • Damage and decay

Extractions performed at Dillon Dental in West Los Angles are gentle, comfortable, and completed in one visit. After the extraction, it is important to follow the care instructions we give you. It is also important to have a tooth replacement plan in place so that you do not have to live without your teeth. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call our office today.
