When necessary, our dentist can extract (pull) a tooth that is damaged or decayed beyond repair. Extraction, if possible, is something that we try to avoid so that you can keep your natural teeth. We may recommend a root canal or other treatment to restore your oral health instead of an extraction. When we do perform extractions, you can rest assured that they are performed with our trademark gentle care and, if you wish, under dental sedation. If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in your teeth or gums, we recommend that you contact the office of Dr. Esperanza A. Rodriguez to see if you need a tooth extraction in Bronx, New York.
