Any time one of your teeth develops decay, suffers trauma or a serious infection, they can be damaged beyond repair and your dentist may suggest extracting the tooth.
Dr. Thaer Daifallah, DDS, is our oral surgeon who provides oral surgery options for our patients in our office on Saturdays. The Dentists in Lawrence team is also able to collectively work with Dr. Daifallah in developing treatment plans for more serious cases. Dr. Daifallah provides in-office sedation to make the process as comfortable as possible for the patient.
