If any of your teeth have been badly damaged by decay, trauma or an infection, our dentists will examine your mouth and take x-rays to see if there’s a chance of repairing the tooth. In many cases, even a tooth that’s been badly damaged may be restored with root canal therapy or by placing a crown or filling. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible.
A severely damaged or infected tooth can affect your ability to eat and speak, as well as your appearance. It can also increase your risk of developing further oral health problems. That’s why we recommend extracting teeth that are too badly damaged to repair, and replacing them with a lifelike artificial tooth to restore your smile.
