Tooth Extractions

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This treatment is typically considered when a tooth is severely damaged or decayed and cannot be saved, or to resolve issues such as overcrowding or infection risk. Our family dentistry is equipped to perform both simple extractions and more complex surgical extractions with the utmost care and precision.

Benefits of Tooth Extractions

  • Pain Relief: Removing a damaged or decayed tooth can alleviate pain and discomfort.
  • Prevents Further Damage: Extraction can prevent the spread of decay or infection to neighboring teeth and gum tissue.
  • Improves Oral Health: Removing a problematic tooth can improve overall oral health and function.
  • Facilitates Orthodontic Treatment: Extractions can create the necessary space for corrected tooth alignment in orthodontic treatments.

Are You a Candidate for Tooth Extractions?

Tooth extractions may be necessary for individuals experiencing severe tooth decay, infection, gum disease, or trauma to the tooth. They are also performed for those needing to create space for orthodontic treatment or to remove problematic wisdom teeth. Our dental team will conduct a thorough examination, possibly including X-rays, to determine if extraction is the best course of action for your specific needs.
