Why Tooth Extraction May Be Necessary

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
  • Infection
  • 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.

Dr. Gutierrez was amazing, not only has she been my dentist, but my son as well. You feel at ease because she’s so confident in how she explains treatment that you don’t feel confused. She is gentle and kind. Great team!

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
