Tooth Extraction

While tooth loss is something we work to prevent, there are times when teeth need to be extracted. We provide careful removals that minimize discomfort and prevent the health complications that stem from leaving the problem tooth in place.

How Tooth Extraction Fits Into Plans To Restore Your Oral Health

While our practice looks for the most conservative way to restore your oral health when a problem arises, there are times when extractions are recommended. These times include:

  • Problems with teeth that are too unhealthy or damaged to protect with a crown
  • When a root canal cannot resolve issues within the tooth structure
  • When you need to have a wisdom tooth removed due to its angle or position

Your Extraction And Recovery

We will determine the most conservative way to access and remove the tooth. This can be affected by its current health and whether it is fully or only partly erupted. Because problems that make this service necessary can be severe and uncomfortable, treatment should take place promptly. In addition to arranging the service with you, we will provide post-care information that you can follow to ensure that you heal successfully.

While it can be alarming to hear that you need an extraction, there are benefits to moving forward with one. You can put a stop to active discomfort, and you give your mouth the chance to recover. This service also protects against the spread of bacteria beyond the tooth in question.
