Q. I need to have a tooth extracted and cosmetic bonding on my teeth as I’ve got a tooth under my gum. Is this safe to remove, as I am a little scared? I need to have this treatment done because I have a gap in the middle tooth and I want braces to close the gap, I was advised to this before I put braces on my teeth, so please could you advise me on what to do? Is it safe and what can I expect in terms of price when having such an operation.
A. There is nothing to get scared for extracting a tooth as it is a procedure which is done under local anesthesia and as of now it is better to do the extraction prior to the orthodontic treatment to get a better result.
