Though tooth removal is avoided when possible, extraction may be the best way to improve your oral health.
At Arden Dental Group, our dentists can perform simple tooth extraction, as well as extraction of wisdom teeth. Drs. Lee, Huffman and Clark use great care and skill to ensure that tooth extraction – like all our procedures – is as painless and comfortable as possible.
Simply put, tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid tooth removal whenever possible, certain conditions may make extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following tooth extraction, we may 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
Once a tooth is extracted, we provide detailed post-treatment care instructions, so you can take care of your smile properly as it heals.
