Why Choose For Beautiful Smiles for a Tooth Extraction?

Reasons Why Tooth Extractions Are Necessary

We will always do everything we can to help patients keep their natural teeth, but sometimes this isn’t a feasible option. Here are some reasons why a tooth extraction might be necessary to preserve the health of your smile:

The Process of Removing a Tooth

Teeth are removed by one of two methods: pulling or surgical extraction. Teeth are only “pulled” when they have fully emerged from the gumline. In this case, we will start by numbing the area around your tooth and using a clasping tool to shift the tooth around until it breaks away from the gumline. If pulling the tooth isn’t a possibility, the tooth will need to be surgically extracted. For this procedure, a small incision is made into your gum tissue, allowing us to reach your tooth and completely remove it.

To decide which extraction method is ideal for you, we need to closely examine your smile in person. If necessary, we will also discuss tooth replacement options to prevent complications from occurring.
