It is important to remove the source of the infection, which is the tooth. If root canal therapy cannot save the tooth, then removal of
the tooth is a viable option.
Sometimes a tooth has been compromised to the point of removal. Whether it's from a cavity or it broke from trauma. It's critical to
remove the tooth before it becomes worse.
Multiple teeth may need to be removed prior to having complete or partial dentures made for a more definitive treatment plan.
