We are occasionally required to extract a tooth if an infection or tooth decay has a strong chance of effecting the surrounding bone and tissue. Our dentist will do everything possible to repair a tooth, as it is best for a patient to retain their natural dentition; however, tooth extractions are sometimes necessary. Dr. Raul Ramirez will help you know whether a tooth extraction is right for you. In addition, we also provide wisdom teeth removal to help our patients avoid the common problems of impacted wisdom teeth and overcrowding. For more information about tooth extractions in Metairie, Louisiana, please call 504-885-3255 today!
