At our dental practice, we know that the thought of a tooth extraction can feel daunting. That is why we are committed to providing a supportive and informative environment, ensuring you understand every step of the process.

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. It is a common solution that we consider when a tooth cannot be saved due to severe decay, periodontal disease or trauma. We also recommend extraction to address overcrowding or in preparation for certain orthodontic treatments.

When you visit our clinic for an extraction, we start with a thorough examination of your dental and medical history, followed by precise imaging studies, like X-rays, to plan the safest and most effective approach to remove your tooth. Our dedicated team prioritizes your comfort and safety, discussing all available options and answering any questions you may have.

The extraction itself is performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the tooth to minimize discomfort. Our skilled dentist are equipped to handle various situations, ensuring that even the most challenging extractions are managed with the utmost care.

After the extraction, our care for you continues. We provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth and swift recovery. This includes advice on managing discomfort, preventing infection and fostering optimal healing at the extraction site. We also discuss tooth replacement options, such as dental implants or bridges, to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile.
