As a last resort, we make extractions as easy and pain-free as possible. Our experienced dentist has been performing extractions for over 20 years and knows when it’s necessary and how to make the process simple.
In severe cases, a tooth may need to be extracted. This is typically done when the tooth is causing severe pain or will eventually cause serious damage to the surrounding teeth or gums. Some examples of when an extraction may be necessary are:
- A baby tooth is misshapen and won’t fall out naturally
- A severely decayed tooth will cause decay in surrounding teeth
- Infection or misalignment of sprouting teeth
Once our dentist has determined that you need an extraction, you can schedule a new appointment or we can typically administer it on the same day. It is a relatively quick procedure, but we would love to take the time to discuss any concerns as well as your preferences for sedation.
We will typically recommend that you replace the extracted tooth due to potential misalignment of other teeth as well as the cosmetic consequences.
