Extraction of a tooth is necessary when a tooth can no longer be restored.  Depending on the level of difficulty, it may be recommended to see an oral surgeon (specialist) for removal of a tooth.  Some extractions will be performed in the office by Dr. Krueger and her staff.  Dr. Krueger will determine if the tooth can be removed in our office or will recommend referral to a specialist after an examination of the tooth including radiographs.
