Our dentist and team make every effort to help you protect and preserve your teeth. However, if the damage to your tooth is so severe that repairing and restoring it is impossible, we may recommend a tooth extraction. We typically recommend tooth extractions if:
- Severe infection has destroyed large portions of the tooth and supporting oral structures
- Serious decay has damaged the tooth beyond repair
- Overcrowding prevents the teeth from fitting in the mouth correctly
If removing a tooth from your mouth is the most effective option for restoring the health and function of your smile, you can rely on our team to make your procedure as comfortable and pain-free as possible. We will work with you to help you remain comfortable during your extraction, and will provide you with detailed post-op instructions to help you heal quickly and without any complications following your tooth extraction.
After you have healed from the extraction, our dentist will work with you to find an appropriate replacement for your missing tooth. Depending on your individual needs and preferences, your replacement may be a dental bridge, an implant, or a complete or partial denture.
