When your tooth is so badly damaged that restorative procedures cannot save it, Our Dentists can perform a tooth extraction to remove it from your mouth before it can cause further harm to your oral health or your remaining teeth. Our dentists will then work with you to determine which type of replacement will be most suitable for your needs. Please contact our office to learn more about tooth extractions and to make your appointment at Waterloo Heights Dental Smiles.
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. We are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Our dentists use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your dental experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.
