Personalized Care Led by a Board-Certified Periodontist
A tooth may need to be extracted for various reasons, including extreme decay or disease, facial trauma and damage, to make room for other teeth, or if wisdom teeth are impacted. No matter the reason for your tooth extraction, our priority is to preserve the health of your smile by removing the issue entirely. If you have been experiencing chronic tooth pain, we will try to save your tooth, such as with root canal therapy, before opting for an extraction. If the tooth is too damaged or wisdom teeth are the problem, a tooth extraction may be the best option to maintain your oral health. We are a team of talented dentists and a board-certified periodontist, and we are experienced in diagnosing your tooth pain and providing personalized treatment that restores health to your smile. Along with our specialized and worry-free care, we offer calming sedation dentistry to ensure your experience with us is relaxing and virtually pain free!
Regular Tooth Extractions Restore Oral Health
The most common reason for a tooth extraction is due to severe damage caused by a fracture, decay, or infection. Baby teeth may also be pulled to avoid crowding when adult teeth erupt or to improve orthodontic treatment. We have the advanced dental tools and expertise required to perform both simple and more complex surgical tooth extractions in-office, safely and with the greatest comfort for you. If one or more teeth require extraction because a natural tooth could not be saved, you have the option to replace them permanently with dental implants. Preferred for their aesthetics and health benefits, dental implants restore nearly all of the power and function of natural teeth. Our specialized team places and restores dental implants in our office to ensure the highest quality care and expertise throughout your entire treatment process.
Reasons for Regular Tooth Extractions
- Retained baby teeth
- Tooth crowding
- Decay or disease
- Tooth fracture
- Impacted teeth
Wisdom Tooth Extractions Preserve Your Smile
Wisdom teeth require a different approach to tooth extraction, as we commonly recommend they be removed sooner rather than later. This ensures that they will not cause pain or infection, crowd or damage existing teeth, or create other oral health problems. Wisdom teeth are gently pulled or surgically removed if impacted, or partially or fully fused in the jaw bone. Surgical removal requires a skilled doctor, and we have the experience and training needed to remove these teeth without harming adjacent teeth or gum tissue around the surgical site. If you have noticed tooth pain, jaw pain or swelling, headaches, or bad breath, it may be time for a wisdom tooth evaluation with us!
Reasons for Wisdom Tooth Removal
- Tooth impaction
- Crowding of other teeth
- Repeated infection
- Tooth decay
- Damage to other teeth
