There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. It may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth and jaw at risk of decay. In that case, Dr. Ustayev may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require tooth extraction. While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share any concerns or preferences for sedation with your Brookline dentist. Dr. Ustayev will recommend the best course of action for your individual situation after a thorough exam of your tooth. Learn more about tooth extractions here.
Root Canal Treatment
When a tooth is damaged or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the inner pulp tissue and cause an infection inside the tooth. If the infected tissue is not removed from inside the tooth, pain and swelling can result. Without the proper treatment, the integrity of your tooth may be compromised and the tooth may need to be extracted. Root canal treatment is the only way to remove the infection from your tooth and save the tooth from having to be extracted.
Dr. Ustayev performs root canal treatment at our Brookline, MA office to ease your pain and save your tooth. After treatment, a crown may be placed to further restore the tooth and strengthen it. Learn more about root canal treatment here.
