Our first priority is always to help our patients keep their natural teeth. However, there are times we will recommend removing a tooth to protect the long-term health of your smile. In these cases, our team works to keep you comfortable throughout the quick and straightforward procedure.
Why Remove a Tooth?
Sometimes, a tooth removal is your best interest. After carefully examining your teeth and digital x-rays, we may recommend tooth removal if we find:
- Severe damage resulting from a traumatic injury
- Heavy decay that is destroying the integrity of the tooth
- Excessive crowding that is pushing teeth out of alignment
- Teeth with significant bone loss
- Retained baby teeth
- Impacted wisdom teeth that are causing severe pain
A Quick and Effective Procedure
In the event that we recommend removing a tooth, we discuss our diagnosis with you and treatment process with you. We’ll take time to answer your questions and address your concerns. If a replacement tooth is necessary, we’ll outline the best options available to you.
Advances in anesthesia, sedation and dental instruments have made tooth removal a quick and effective process. During the procedure, your mouth is numbed to ensure your comfort. Precision tools are used to remove the tooth efficiently. After the procedure, we help you minimize discomfort with antibiotics.
