You and Dr. Kapoor may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
To avoid these complications, in most cases, Dr. Kapoor will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth with specific space maintainers.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial
This has been by far the best dental experience for my son. He's on the spectrum and gets very anxious and worried about dentists and doctors and needles, but the ladies at GD4Kids made him feel comfortable and safe. They answered all of his questions and explained what they were going to do, and even sang to him as she did her work. The office is super clean and comfortable, and the prize wall is a huge plus and incentive for the kids!
