Dr. Ashok Jhanji may perform a tooth extraction when your tooth is broken or severely decayed. Tooth extractions are recommended when your tooth is too badly damaged for a restorative treatment and is threatening the health of your other teeth. Following your procedure, our dentist will work with you to determine a suitable replacement for your tooth.
