Our specialty team will recommend an extraction if we think that it will benefit the patient medically. A bad tooth, just like a bad apple, can be a liability rather than an asset. If extractions are indicated, the likelihood of postoperative complications are minimal. We use pain medication before, during, and after the extraction(s). Our patients go home on a soft diet while the tissue at the extraction site heals. The risks are greater if the tooth or teeth are not treated or extracted. The potential for infection, pain, or disease progression will far outweigh any negative effects of extraction.
