Extractions

Sometimes, a tooth may require removal, we call this extraction. Multiple situations require an extraction: tooth trauma, decay, periodontal disease, position, infection or breaking in a way that cannot be repaired. Although we hate to see anyone loose a tooth, sometimes that is the best option.

For your safety, we evaluate the root and bone structure so that we can plan what we need to do before we do it. There are two approaches to extraction: nonsurgical or surgical. In the nonsurgical case, the tooth is just loosened with specialized instruments and pulled. Healing is generally quicker with this type of procedure but sometimes, a nonsurgical extraction isn’t possible.In this case, we are left with the surgical option. 

Depending on the situation, we may recommend a referral to an oral surgeon, particularly if we feel that your case is too difficult to be safely done here. Ultimately, we want the best outcome for you, even if that means going to a specialist.
