Dr. Tang’s Extraction (Removal of Teeth) Philosophy

In many cases, Dr. Tang can avoid extractions (removal of teeth) by expanding the jaws and/or widening the arches of the teeth. This avoids unnecessary extractions. In addition, by avoiding extractions, patients receive the following benefits:

  • a broader, fuller smile
  • improved lip support
  • a more pleasing aesthetic facial profile
  • optimal function of the TMJ (jaw joint)

However, in certain cases, in which there is a severe bite problem, extractions may be necessary in order to achieve the best treatment result possible. Dr. Tang will explain the advantages and disadvantages of all treatment options with you. Together we will decide what will work best for you as an individual.
