Tooth extractions are a simple surgical procedure we may perform to remove your problem tooth. While we work to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function.

When Tooth Extractions Are Necessary

You may need a tooth extraction if:

  • Severe infection has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure.
  • Serious decay has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible.
  • Too many teeth are crowding each other in the mouth.
  • Impacted teeth are struggling to grow in.

During this procedure, our talented dentists and team provide great care and skill to ensure your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We also give detailed post-treatment care instructions for you to take care of your smile at home while it takes time to heal. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.

If you require a tooth extraction, please let our dental team know right away so we can reserve a time slot for you on our calendar.
