image40While most dentists will do anything possible to save a tooth, it is not always possible. Extractions are sometimes the only treatment that can be done for a tooth that has a deep stress fracture, a substantial amount of decay, or is severely broken.  Wisdom teeth that do not erupt correctly are also often removed in order to avoid future problems.  When a tooth must come out, Dr. Victor may remove the tooth or refer the patient to an Oral Surgeon, depending on the medical and dental conditions of the patient.
