Our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction if your tooth is too badly damaged to restore. While our goal is to help you preserve and protect your teeth through preventive care, a tooth extraction may be needed if:
- The tooth and supporting bone have been destroyed by severe infection.
- Significant decay has damaged the tooth beyond repair.
- Overcrowding caused by too many teeth makes it impossible for your teeth to fit properly.
Dr. Angela Ishak will evaluate your teeth thoroughly to determine if a tooth extraction is the right option for you. If we do remove your teeth, our dentist and team will take care to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible. We will provide you with post-op instructions to help you recover and after you have healed, we will work closely with you to find the right type of replacement for your missing teeth.
Your teeth play an important role in your oral health and function, affecting your ability to smile, speak and eat. Your teeth also stimulate your supporting bone to keep it strong and healthy and give your teeth a stable foundation. If you have a tooth extracted, we recommend that you replace it as soon as possible to regain normal oral health and function and prevent additional problems from occurring. Depending on how many teeth you need to replace, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge, complete or partial dentures, or a dental implant to meet your needs.
