Why We Might Recommend Extraction
We never take extractions lightly, and they are almost always a last resort treatment that’s needed to protect your overall oral health. If a tooth is too damaged, we may recommend extraction, but we assure you that we will eliminate all our other options before we recommend removal.
Examples of when we might recommend extraction are:
- Advanced Decay – A decayed tooth is so compromised that a filling or crown is no longer sufficient to protect it.
- Root Canal Infection – An infected root canal has passed the point where we can resolve it with endodontic treatment.
- In Preparation for Dentures – In some cases, we need to remove one or more teeth to deliver the best outcome for your dentures treatment.
- Removal of Wisdom Teeth – Wisdom teeth are so far back in your mouth that adequate cleaning can be difficult or impossible. Since they don’t serve any purpose, we often recommend removal to avoid any problems that may develop with them in the future.
Compassionate Care from a Supportive Team
Tooth loss can impact your life in ways you may not expect. If you are embarrassed or ashamed that you need extraction, your confidence suffers. Then you have to prepare for the procedure itself and decide what tooth replacement will best fit your needs.
But you can feel comfortable with us, knowing that we are a caring team of professionals who can relate to your concerns. Our only goal is to make your procedure as comfortable as possible so you can get the help you need to restore your comfort and oral health. If Dr. Maryann or Dr. Jon determines that extraction is your best option, they will help you understand why the procedure is necessary and how it will benefit your oral health in the long term.
When it’s time for your procedure, you can take comfort knowing that a compassionate team member will be with you during your appointment to offer a hand to hold or moral support if you feel nervous.
