It is never ideal to remove a permanent tooth. However, there are situations in which tooth extraction is the best option. Our team at Majestic Smile Studio is fully equipped to save an adult tooth if it is possible. We offer fillings, root canals and crowns to restore damaged teeth. Unfortunately, not all teeth can or should be saved. When we recommend tooth removal, you can trust that it is in the best interest of your current and future smile health.
During your tooth extraction, we value the importance of preserving the surrounding bone and tissue as much as possible. We use gentle and conservative techniques. Our dentists not only take the time to explain the tooth extraction process and post-operative instructions, but we also make sure they understand why a tooth extraction is necessary for you.
Reasons for Tooth Removal
There are a wide variety of reasons why a tooth extraction may be needed, some of which are in your control and others that are not. Tooth removal is a simply oral surgery that may be performed in the following situations:
- Severe decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Baby tooth that won’t fall out on its own
- Prep for orthodontic treatment
- Fractured teeth or damaged roots
- Impacted teeth (wisdom teeth)
Importance of Replacing the Missing Tooth
Unless the extraction was for orthodontic reasons or involved your wisdom teeth, you’ll likely be faced with the next step of tooth after your extraction procedure. This not only restores the aesthetics of your smile, but it can also help prevent dental problems from shifting teeth and bone loss that commonly occurs from missing teeth. Majestic Smile Studio proudly offers bridges, dentures and dental implants to ensure your replacement teeth look, feel and function like your natural teeth.
