Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a tooth from its place in your mouth and jaw. While our dentist and team always aim to preserve natural teeth whenever possible, there are certain situations that may require a tooth extraction to restore oral health and function.
One common reason an extraction may be necessary is severe infection that has extensively damaged the tooth and the surrounding bone structure. In such cases, extraction becomes necessary to prevent the infection from spreading further. Additionally, serious tooth decay that has rendered a tooth irreparable may also warrant extraction when other restorative options are not feasible.
Sometimes, teeth may need to be extracted due to overcrowding in the mouth. When there are too many teeth for the available space, extracting one or more teeth can create room for proper alignment and prevent future dental issues.
During a tooth extraction, our skilled and experienced dentist and team prioritize your comfort and strive to make the procedure as painless as possible. We also provide comprehensive post-treatment care instructions to ensure proper healing and maintenance of your smile, and offer excellent tooth replacement options, including dental implants, to ensure your smile remains beautiful and fully functional after your tooth extraction.
