Comfortable Tooth Removal in Pittsburgh, PA
Having a tooth pulled, or extracted, is rarely a patient’s or a dentist’s first choice of treatment. But there are situations where tooth extraction is the only option to stop pain and start the healing process. At South Vue Dentistry, Dr. Howard provides extractions, or will work with local specialists, when they become necessary. He and his staff want to make this treatment choice as painless as possible with the goal of immediate relief of your discomfort.
To achieve this goal, Dr. Howard uses anesthetic to numb the infected tooth and the surrounding gums and bone tissue. Removing an infected, painful tooth is a definitive treatment to halt your pain and safeguard your health against infection.
Although we prefer to save teeth whenever possible, sometimes an extraction is the only treatment available. If you are suffering from a constant toothache or notice signs of infection, please call us now at (412) 835-2288 for an appointment to discuss your options.
