A Tooth Extraction may become necessary when a tooth is severely damaged  by decay, gum disease, or trauma. In addition to standard extractions, some wisdom teeth are able to be extracted at Downtown Dental. If you are planning to replace the missing tooth with an implant or would like a better fitting bridge, bone can be grafted into the extraction site at the time of the extraction.  See our section on dental implants for more information on them.  Implants can be placed and restored at DDS!
