A tooth extraction involves removing an entire tooth from the mouth. At our practice, we want our patients to maintain all of their natural teeth whenever possible; however, there are some situations where removing a tooth may be the best option for preserving your oral health. Some of the most common reasons for requiring a tooth extraction include:
- Severe dental infections that have led to the deterioration of most of the tooth or the bone beneath
- Extensive tooth decay that makes it impossible to repair the tooth and perform a successful restorative treatment
- Dental crowding, often caused by insufficient space to fit all of the teeth in the mouth, or the eruption of extra teeth
When you visit our practice, we will carefully and thoroughly examine your oral health to determine if a tooth extraction is the right call. Should you require an extraction, our dentist is extremely skilled and will work to ensure that your treatment is as painless as possible. Our team will also provide you with specific post-treatment instructions, so you can have a quick and complete recovery. Following your extraction, our dentist can provide a beautiful, natural-looking replacement tooth to restore the full appearance and functionality of your smile.
