Patients who have an infected or severely damaged tooth may also have a higher risk of dental health issues. For this reason, when keeping the tooth presents more problems than replacing it does, Dr. Ruth Adkins may recommend a tooth extraction in Lexington, Kentucky. If you would like to learn more about our surgical procedures at Adkins Family and Cosmetic Dentistry and are ready to meet with our dentist, please call us at 859-963-1388.
