Our dentists and team are committed to providing you with conservative treatments that can repair and restore your teeth. However, in some cases, a tooth may be so badly damaged that it cannot be restored. If this is the case for you, our dentists may recommend a tooth extraction.
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from your mouth. Extractions are typically recommended when:
- A tooth is severely infected and significant portions of the tooth and supporting bone have been destroyed.
- A tooth has suffered from significant decay and is beyond the point where it can be restored.
- Your teeth are overcrowded and cannot fit properly in the mouth, leading to problems with tooth alignment, decay or other issues.
We will take special care when removing your tooth or teeth to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible. After removing your tooth, we will provide you with detailed post-op instructions to help you heal and recover. Our dentists will also work with you to find the right type of tooth replacement option for your smile. Depending on your needs, this could be a dental implant, a bridge, or a complete or partial denture. We will discuss all your options with you to help you make an informed decision about your treatment.
