If you think you need a tooth extraction, contact our New Bern, NC dental office for a consultation with Dr. Stephen Hoard. The dentist will evaluate your condition and make recommendations for a full treatment plan.
In most cases, the recommended treatment is to preserve the natural teeth. There are situations, however, where a tooth extraction may be the best choice. In these cases, Dr. Hoard will design a treatment plan to remove the tooth and replace it either with a dental implant, dental bridge or denture. It is important to replace missing teeth quickly to prevent supporting bone from deteriorating and remaining teeth from shifting.
