The goal of dentistry is to promote good oral health so that you can lead a healthy life, eat the foods you love, and smile with confidence. We recommend dental extractions only as a last resort to protect your health or reduce unpleasant symptoms like pain – and it is never a recommendation that we make lightly. If we decide a tooth extraction is necessary, we’ll do our best to ensure your comfort, including answering any questions and providing local anesthetic and sedation if need be. To learn more about tooth extractions and whether you might need one, call us today.

When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?
A tooth might have to be extracted if:
Severe decay has damaged most of its enamel
The tooth is so weak that it is in danger of cracking
It doesn’t have enough healthy enamel to support a restoration
Advanced gum disease has weakened the bone supporting a tooth
More room is needed in the mouth for a denture or orthodontic treatment
One tooth is preventing another from properly erupting
