Comfortable Dental Extractions

Our dentists strive to preserve and restore the natural structure of your teeth. However, extensive disease, decay, or trauma may lead to a medically necessary tooth extraction. Dental extractions are required for a variety of reasons including: extensive tooth decay (cavities), impacted or symptomatic wisdom teeth, advanced periodontal disease, over-retained baby teeth, or severe crowding in order to help make space for orthodontic treatment (braces). We do most extractions here in our office, helping to avoid extra costs and time associated with a referral.

Why Do I Need A Tooth Extraction?

In most cases, a tooth extraction is used only as a last resort if other restorative dental procedures are unsuccessful. Common reasons why you might need a tooth pulled include:

  • Extensive dental decay
  • A failed root canal
  • Cracked or fractured tooth
  • An antibiotic-resistant infection
  • Risk of an infection spreading to the bloodstream (sepsis)
  • Dental damage beyond repair
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth

At Denovo, our team prioritizes your health. Therefore, we will only recommend a tooth extraction if we have exhausted all other options. For some patients, tooth removal may be the best solution to improve their quality of life and save their oral health.

We will also discuss the ways we can replace the tooth before moving forward. Dental implants, bridges, or dentures, may be good options for replacing the missing tooth and we will be sure to discuss the benefits of each of them as we figure out the best choice for you moving forward to restore your smile!
