Dealing with a problematic tooth can be distressing, but sometimes extraction is necessary to maintain overall oral health. Our dentist and skilled team are experienced in performing tooth extractions with precision and care. We focus on making the extraction process as comfortable and stress-free as possible, ensuring your well-being throughout the procedure.
Understanding Tooth Extractions
Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure may be required for various reasons, including:
- Severe Tooth Decay or Infection
- Impacted Wisdom Teeth
- Teeth Overcrowding
- Damage from Trauma
- Periodontal (Gum) Disease
Our goal is to preserve natural teeth whenever possible, but when extraction is the best course of action, we ensure it is done safely and effectively.
