The best teeth for your smile are the ones you have right now. But if a tooth is extremely damaged or has become severely decayed of infected, it may pose problems for your oral or overall health and put your other teeth at risk. If you are dealing with a situation like this, or if you are suffering from tooth-crowding or need a tooth removed for orthodontic reasons, our dentist may suggest a tooth extraction. If one or more of your teeth have been giving you problems, call Springwater Dental at 503-228-5059. We will be happy to schedule you for a visit with Dr. Paul Chung to see if you could benefit from a tooth extraction in Portland, Oregon.
