We go out of our way to help dental patients retain their teeth whenever possible since no tooth replacement is as good as your natural tooth. Unfortunately, if a tooth is likely to cause future oral health issues and no other restorative solution can save it, an extraction will be performed. The good news is La Prada Family Dentistry will always make your comfort a priority and take all the steps necessary to ensure total success. If your tooth is causing you problems, call our dental office to schedule same-day treatment!
Typically if a tooth requires extraction, it’s because the tooth has become so damaged that it cannot be restored via a filling, crown or root canal. Damage usually appears as a result of extensive decay or because of a traumatic injury splitting the tooth down to the root portion. In other cases, teeth may require extraction to accommodate orthodontic treatment. Prior to treatment, one of our dentists will numb the tooth and surrounding tissue to make you as comfortable as possible.
