There are many ways to save a tooth experiencing issues such as decay, cracks, or excessive stains. We can usually treat it with such procedures as dental fillings, crowns, and teeth-whitening. Sometimes, a tooth may be so damaged that it poses a risk to adjacent teeth or your overall oral health. When that happens, we recommend a tooth extraction.
What is the Treatment Like?
Tooth extractions are a last resort, and we will do everything possible to save the tooth. After thoroughly examining the tooth needing treatment and determining it needs to be removed, we’ll numb it and the surrounding tissue with a local anesthetic. We’ll then gently remove the tooth from your mouth. We may suggest pain medication to take to so you can be more comfortable during the healing process. We also recommend that you eat soft food while the treated area heals. We offer restorative options, like dental implants, if you would like to replace the tooth.
