At Arrowhead Family Dentistry, our goal is to help you protect your teeth and keep them healthy. We seek to provide conservative treatments wherever possible so that you can avoid having a tooth removed. However, it may occasionally be necessary to extract a tooth in order to protect your oral health.
There are several conditions that may lead to tooth extraction, including:
- Severe infection that has destroyed large portions of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Severe decay that has damaged the tooth beyond repair
When performing your tooth extractions, our dentist is as gentle as possible. Anesthetic and sedation options are available to help you feel more comfortable and manage any discomfort. We will also provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal and recover as quickly as possible.
After you have recovered from your tooth extraction, our dentist will work with you to find an appropriate replacement for your missing tooth or teeth. Depending on the number of teeth you are replacing and your individual needs, your replacement tooth may be an implant, a bridge or a denture.
