What are tooth extractions?

Tooth extractions are a common dental procedure, usually performed to remove damaged or decayed teeth. In some cases, tooth extractions may also be necessary to prepare the mouth for orthodontic treatment.

At our dental practice, we always aim to perform tooth extractions in the gentlest and minimally invasive way possible. This is especially important for anterior teeth, as they are visible when you smile, and we want to preserve your natural appearance.

Why get a tooth removed?

There are a number of reasons why tooth extractions may be necessary. In some cases, the tooth may be too damaged or decayed to be saved with a filling or other type of dental restoration. In other cases, the tooth may be impacted (stuck beneath the gum line) or overcrowded, making it necessary to remove it in order to achieve optimal dental health.

If you require a tooth extraction, our experienced team will ensure that the procedure is performed quickly and with as little discomfort as possible. We will also provide you with clear instructions for post-operative care, to help ensure a speedy and successful recovery.

If you have any questions or concerns about tooth extractions, we encourage you to contact our office and speak with one of our knowledgeable team members. Our endodontist and team will be happy to answer any of your questions and help you make the best decision for your dental health.
