Risks Involved with Tooth Extractions
Tooth extractions are considered an oral surgery procedure. Like most surgeries, these procedures leave the body susceptible to infection. It is very important to provide your dentist with your entire updated medical history – including a list of all medications and supplements you are taking. Your medical history will guide your dentist in developing a pre- and post- treatment plan that best fits your needs.
