To set up your appointment with our dentist, we invite you to contact our office today.
In any case where a patient has dental damage or decay, the best option is to provide efficient treatment in a way that allows the patient to keep their natural teeth. However, there are some instances where that may not be an option. When a tooth is severely damaged or threatens the health of the rest of your teeth, you may require a tooth extraction. In short, this means that the damaged tooth will be removed from your mouth.
Tooth extractions are not too common, but there are some circumstances that typically require an extraction. Some of these circumstances include:
- Progressive infection or disease that has damaged or destroyed a large portion of the tooth and, in some cases, the supporting bone underneath.
- Dental damage or decay that cannot be repaired with a traditional restoration
- Crowded teeth
While many patients get nervous about the thought of a tooth extraction, our dentist works with you to make sure that this procedure is absolutely necessary before proceeding with great care and comfort. During your tooth extraction, we offer various types of sedation and anesthesia to make sure your procedure is comfortable. Our dentist and team also provide you with post-op instructions to help you know how to care for your mouth as it heals.
