We try to avoid the need for tooth extraction, or the removal of a tooth, if at all possible. However, in some cases, tooth extraction is the best way to return your smile to proper health and function. After a tooth extraction is performed, we can provide you with one of our fantastic tooth restorations to provide you with a healthy, beautiful smile.
The conditions that may make tooth extraction necessary include:
- Extensive infection that has destroyed jawbone structure and a significant portion of the tooth
- Extensive decay that has damaged a tooth to the point that it cannot be restored
- Crowding because there are too many teeth to fit in the mouth as they should
Our dentist and team take great care when providing tooth extraction to ensure that your procedure is as relaxed and comfortable as possible. We will provide post-treatment instructions so that you can properly care for your mouth as it recovers. To learn more about tooth extraction and set your next appointment, feel free to call us today.
