Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. While our primary goal is to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible, certain circumstances may necessitate the extraction of a tooth to restore your oral health and function. After the extraction, our dentist can offer you various tooth replacement options to ensure the continued wellbeing and aesthetics of your smile.
Several dental issues may lead to the need for tooth extraction. These include:
- Severe infections that have extensively damaged the tooth and its surrounding bone structure
- Serious decay that has rendered the tooth beyond repair, making any restoration impossible
- Overcrowding in the mouth due to an excessive number of teeth may require the removal of one or more teeth to create sufficient space for proper alignment
- Teeth which have sustained significant injury or trauma and are too damaged to be restored with more conservative treatments.
Our skilled dentist and team approach tooth extractions with precision and care to ensure that your experience is as comfortable as possible. We prioritize your comfort throughout your extraction procedure. Following the extraction, we will provide you with detailed post-treatment instructions to guide you in taking care of your healing smile, and will work with you to find the type of tooth replacement that is right for your needs.
