The unfortunate reality is that not every damaged tooth can be saved, despite our best efforts. Leaving, say, a badly decayed tooth that cannot be saved in your mouth may lead to  bigger problems, such as an infection. Sometimes the best option is to take it out and perhaps consider replacement options. 

The thought of a dental extraction can be frightening. Thankfully, most dental extractions are straightforward, simple, and fairly quick.

A numbing solution is administered to make the procedure pain-free, and the tooth is removed using specialized equipment. You may feel pressure, but you should not feel pain.

When the tooth is removed, you’ll have a space where the tooth once was. Fortunately, modern dental technology provides a wide range of tooth-replacement options to fill that space.

Our dentists will advise you on the need for dental extractions and tooth-replacement options.
