The goal of dentistry is to preserve your teeth as long as possible while keeping your body healthy. Unfortunately, sometimes tooth extraction will provide the best outcome for your oral health.

No one wants to deal with tooth loss, and in many cases root canal therapy can prevent tooth loss. Dr. Andre and Dr Thatcher can offer relief to pain and sensitivity if the infection hasn’t traveled to the bone. However, even if the disease has reached the bone, there are still methods to preserve your teeth and prevent extraction. A bone graft can provide your tooth the support it needs to stay in place, and dental crowns can protect your tooth from further damage. Additionally, gum disease treatment can save your mouth from further damage.
