Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are sometimes necessary to protect your oral health and maintain a comfortable, functional smile. Whether it is due to severe decay, overcrowding or impacted wisdom teeth, our dental office offers gentle and professional tooth extractions to address your needs and ensure your long-term dental well-being.

When a Tooth Extraction is Needed

Tooth extractions may be recommended for various reasons, including:

  • Severe tooth decay or infection
  • Overcrowding or preparation for orthodontics
  • Impacted or problematic wisdom teeth
  • Broken or damaged teeth beyond repair
  • Periodontal (gum) disease affecting tooth stability

By removing problematic teeth, tooth extractions can help prevent further complications and promote a healthier smile.

The Tooth Extraction Process

The process of a tooth extraction begins with a consultation, where our dentists will assess your needs and discuss the procedure. During the extraction, you will receive local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The tooth is carefully removed, and post-extraction care instructions are provided to promote healing. Most patients recover quickly and can resume normal activities soon after the procedure.

Benefits of Tooth Extractions

Choosing a tooth extraction offers several benefits, including:

  • Relief from pain or discomfort
  • Prevention of further dental issues
  • Improved oral health and hygiene
  • Preparation for restorative or orthodontic treatment
