Dr. Damien Armstrong provides gentle tooth extractions at Mint Dental in Chattanooga, TN, to prevent overcrowding and alleviate risk of further complications from damage or decay. We will always do our best to avoid an extraction through conservative restorative treatments, including dental fillings, crowns, or root canal therapy. However, in some cases, when a tooth is beyond repair and your oral health is in jeopardy, a tooth extraction may be necessary. Dr. Armstrong can perform simple extractions for teeth that are fully emerged. For teeth that are impacted, we will refer you to a local oral surgeon.
