Much of our work and energy is devoted to saving, preserving, rebuilding, and replacing teeth. Unfortunately, despite heroic efforts on behalf of our team and our patients, we are occasionally faced with the decision to remove a natural tooth. No tooth should be extracted without considerable thought and planning, but there are certainly valid reasons that would warrant the extraction of a natural tooth. When those instances arise, we want you to know that we are here to support you before, during, and after your tooth is removed.
Know When to Say When
A severely damaged tooth must often be extracted when the extent of the damage is considered to be beyond repair. This may apply to a cracked or fractured tooth, a tooth that has lost significant bone support due to periodontal disease, or a tooth that has not responded favorably to a root canal procedure. If saving your tooth just isn’t feasible, we will be here to review all of your treatment options and help you to arrive at the decision that is most comfortable for you.
