Tooth Extractions

Although we make every attempt to save the tooth, we might recommend tooth extractions for different reasons. If, for example, a tooth has been very badly damaged and can’t be repaired, extraction is the best option. The same is true if a tooth is infected but not a good candidate for a root canal. Serious gum disease might also require tooth extraction as part of the treatment.

It’s never an easy decision to decide to extract a tooth. Dr. Bob will explain to you the costs and benefits of each treatment option, then listen to your concerns and goals. Together, you can decide on the best course of action.

Comfort During Your Extraction

Dr. Bob is dedicated to the comfort of his patients. As a member of DOCS (Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation), he’s properly trained in the use of oral sedation to help you avoid anxiety and discomfort during your procedure.

Combined with the most recent technologies and techniques, this helps ensure that your procedure will be as comfortable as possible.

Preserve Your Smile

In many cases, we can also plan to replace a tooth that is being lost to decay, trauma, or gum disease. When we extract your natural tooth, we can plan for a replacement with a denture, dental bridge, or dental implant, depending on your situation.

An extraction can be a hard decision, but it’s often the best way to give yourself the beautiful, whole smile you want to share with the world.
