Do you need to have a tooth pulled? We believe that when possible, it’s always best to preserve and repair your natural teeth. But when a tooth is damaged past the point of being restorable, it may need to be removed before it causes other problems.

Here are a few examples of when a tooth extraction may be appropriate:

  • Severely decayed teeth
  • Advanced gum disease (Periodontitis)
  • Orthodontic therapy
  • Impacted and Infected wisdom teeth
  • Full mouth rehabilitation
  • Reinfected endodontic treatment

During your exam, we will review your digital x-rays and discuss your options in order to help you choose the appropriate course of therapy.

Planning for Tooth Replacement

Each tooth plays a crucial role in the structure and appearance of your smile. Even if your missing tooth isn’t visible when you talk or laugh, it can cause other teeth to shift and drift out of place leading to dysfunction.

If you have a tooth that is not salvageable and needs to be pulled, do not panic. In today’s dental technology, replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant in a timely manner is considered to be the standard of care.
