Modern dental treatment planning always focuses upon the avoidance of pulling out a tooth from its sockets. Minimal intervention is always recommended including saving a tooth through root canal procedures for the maximum time possible.

Dr Sandhya and her team of dental specialists at Anantuni Famliy Dental carry out atraumatic and pain free tooth extractions at the Chandler Arizona dental office using state of the art equipment and the latest techniques.
