Tooth Extraction

When a tooth is broken and is no longer able to be restored, our dentists will recommend removing the tooth in order to improve your overall oral health. Some conditions that will necessitate an extraction would be:

  • Crowding of teeth (removal for orthodontics, create space)
  • Severe decay that is beyond a restoration
  • Severe infection that has damaged the tooth and the bone structure beyond repair

 

Once a tooth is extracted there are several options for replacing the space:

  • Implants
  • Bridges
  • Adding teeth to existing partials
