END Structured Data-->
The goal of dentistry is to promote good oral health and comfort so that you can lead a healthier life and eat the foods you love. We recommend dental extractions only as a last resort to protect your health, eliminate symptoms, or reduce pain – and it is never a recommendation that we take lightly.
If you have injuries involving your head and neck, it is important to seek immediate medical treatment. We can address your dental concerns once any life-threatening injuries have been ruled out.
Common conditions requiring a dental extraction:
In many cases, we can plan for tooth replacement treatment prior to beginning your extraction so that we have a plan in place to restore your smile. In cases of overcrowding or wisdom tooth extractions, we will not need to replace missing teeth.
Our team will explain all your options and help you make a good decision regarding your oral health.
We understand that many of our patients have concerns about dental extractions. Will it hurt? What will happen to my oral health? How will it affect the appearance of my smile?
We'll take the time to make sure that these concerns are addressed and your questions are answered.
We make patient comfort a top priority. Our dentist will always use appropriate levels of anesthetic and wait for it to take effect before beginning. Our team communicates well and will be here to answer your questions. Together, we will design a solution that addresses each of your concerns.
We strive to provide efficient, effective, and successful dental extractions so that you can get on the road to recovery quickly.
Surgical extractions involve teeth that have not fully erupted from the gums. This often occurs when there is not enough space for the tooth or it is growing in at an angle. This condition, known as impaction, often causes pain and jaw discomfort. Removing your tooth can dramatically improve your comfort and protect your remaining teeth.
Caring for your surgical site is important:
