Melody Talks about having a tooth extraction
When I came to see him five years ago, I had an infected molar, and I was coming to see him for a second opinion. We were able to discuss what my options were, what he thought the best option was given the extent of the infection, which was an extraction. It was my first one, and he was sensitive to the fact but helped me get over that hurdle. Yes, it does need to be pulled, and then there are options after it is pulled to maintain a good bite, be able to eat food. So my concerns were addressed. The work that he’s done since, I’m very happy with. Cosmetically, everything is at least as good as when I arrived. I had a good bite when I came in, so he’s been very good about maintaining that. I appreciate it.
Since my extraction was a way in the back, we decided not to do anything because I had opposing teeth for the rest of the row. With Dr. Sommer, it’s okay to do nothing. That’s one of your options, if that’s the best option. If you agree with him that doing nothing at this time is the best option, then we’re fine with that. We’ll just keep an eye on it. It could change in the future, but waiting is okay. I like that.
