General Tooth Extraction Reviews
Teeth can be recommended for removal for a variety of reasons; most commonly, teeth must be extracted because they are too damaged to repair and/or because they are causing problems for your other teeth. In younger patients, teeth are often removed because they are causing dental crowding. Additionally, dental extractions are required when a tooth is severely damaged and a dentist is unable to fix it through a filling, crown, or root canal therapy. Teeth can be damaged by infection, disease, decay, or even a facial trauma injury. Regardless of the cause, oral surgeons are the most qualified professionals to remove teeth.
Patients often come into our office nervous about having teeth extracted because they don't want to be missing teeth. Missing teeth can negatively affect your ability to eat and smile, which is why when you visit our office for an extraction, our doctors will discuss with you your options for tooth replacement, if applicable. Many past patients have visited our office worried about losing teeth, but have left our office with a smile on their face, completely unable to tell they even had a dental extraction.
