Extractions:

Extraction is the complete removal of a primary or a permanent tooth. An extraction can be surgical or non-surgical. This depends on the difficulty of the extraction and whether or not the tooth is impacted or erupted, and whether it has straight or curved roots.


An extraction may be done by our office or you may be referred to an Oral Surgeon (someone who specializes in difficult or surgical extractions). No one looks forward to an extraction, but modern anesthesia will help keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.

Reasons for an extraction are when teeth cannot be saved for the following reasons:


We prefer to save the teeth but sometimes an extraction is necessary.


After an extraction, it is recommended to fill the space of the missing tooth or teeth. Otherwise teeth adjacent will drift into the space causing other dental problems. An extracted tooth may be replaced by a removable or permanent bridge, a partial or complete denture, or a by an implant.
