Our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction if your tooth cannot be saved and restored. At Smile Moderne, we make every effort to provide the most conservative treatments possible in order to protect and preserve your tooth. However, if your tooth sustains such extensive damage that it cannot be restored, an extraction may be the best solution for restoring your oral health and smile. Some of the conditions that lead to a tooth extraction include:
- Severe infection (which has destroyed tooth and supporting bone structure)
- Severe tooth decay
We know that having a tooth removed from your mouth is unpleasant, and we make every effort to help you feel as comfortable as possible during the extraction. Our dentist will remove your tooth as gently as possible, and we will provide you with post-op instructions afterwards to help you heal and recover. After you have healed, we will work with you to find a suitable replacement for your missing tooth. Depending on your needs, you may receive a dental bridge, complete or partial dentures, or a dental implant.
