Although our team does everything we can to preserve your teeth, at times a tooth extraction can be the best thing for your smile!
Causes for a Tooth Extraction
A dental extraction may be recommended if you have crowded teeth, a wisdom tooth that cannot grow in properly, severe tooth decay or damage. An injury or accident can also create a need for a tooth extraction. At times, a broken or damaged tooth can be protected by a dental crown and will not need to be extracted. However, if the tooth is causing harm to surrounding teeth or is broken beyond repair, an extraction may be recommended. No matter the reason, if a tooth extraction is recommended, we will go the extra mile to ensure you are comfortable throughout treatment.
Dental extractions can be performed in just one visit. Before beginning treatment, your dentist will make sure that you are completely at ease and that the area around the tooth is numb. Sedation dentistry can help you feel comfortable throughout any visit. If you would like to use sedation during treatment, your dentist can go over the best options for you. Once you are ready, your dentist will carefully perform the extraction. If a tooth restoration is needed to replace a tooth that is being extracted, your dentist can go over the best possible options for restoring your smile. A dental implant, bridge or dental crown are all great options for replacing a missing tooth.
