The removal of a tooth is called tooth extraction. There are certain dental issues that may make tooth extraction the best option for restoring your oral health and function. After a tooth extraction, our dentists and team can go over your options for tooth replacement to restore the appearance and functionality of your smile.

Some dental problems that may make tooth extraction necessary include:

  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
  • Serious decay that is too extensive to be repaired
  • Severe infection that has damaged a large portion of the tooth and the surrounding bone

We will make every effort to make your experience as comfortable and stress free as possible. Our dentists and team will also provide you with detailed post-op instructions so that your recovery can be as comfortable as possible. We invite you to contact our office today to learn more and book an appointment.
