Whenever possible, we do our best to preserve your natural tooth material. That said, there are times when it is better for us to remove the tooth. Let’s learn more about what these cases look like.
When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary, and What Happens After?
We always endeavor to preserve as much tooth material as possible, so if you come into our office with a cavity, infection, or other dental issue, we will do our best to find other options. This can mean a root canal, filling, or other procedure. Still, if the tooth is too infected or otherwise irreparably damaged, we may need to extract it.
After we pull a tooth, it is in your best interest to look into replacement options, both for your oral health and so as not to interrupt your eating or speaking. Depending on your budget and overall dental health, we’ll likely recommend single-tooth implants, multiple-tooth implants, or All on 4s®*.
Emergency Tooth Extractions
In an ideal world, you schedule an appointment so that you can get all the care you need. That said, we understand that an emergency can’t wait for the office to open. Here are some signs that you might be experiencing a dental emergency:
Bleeding that won’t stop
One or more knocked-out teeth
