Tooth Extractions

The loss of a single tooth can have major impact upon your oral health and appearance.  Although dentists will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, it is sometimes necessary to have a tooth extracted.  A tooth may need to be extracted for the following reasons:

  • Severe decay
  • Aadvanced periodontal disease
  • Infection or abcess
  • Orthodontic correction
  • Fractured teeth or roots
  • Impacted teeth

  • Before a tooth is removed, we will take an x-ray in order to understand the shape and position of your tooth and surrounding bone.  Based on the degree of difficulty, we may refer you to a specialized oral surgeon. It is important to follow the instructions given to you after an extraction to alleviate discomfort and ensure proper healing.
