Reasons To Have A Tooth Removed
At Uptown Dental Associates, we will do everything we can to repair and maintain your natural teeth. But in some cases, the best thing to do for your overall health is to extract damaged or highly decayed teeth.
- Wisdom teeth that are not emerging properly
- Teeth suffering from severe decay
- Teeth that cannot be saved with a root canal
- Making room for other teeth in your mouth
What To Expect During Your Tooth Extractions
So you know what to expect, we will clearly explain every step of a tooth extractions before we begin.
If we cannot revive your tooth with a restorative dentistry procedure, we will:
- Thoroughly plan your treatment using digital X-rays and other advanced dental technologies
- Numb the area for optimum comfort
- Gently remove your tooth
We will also give you advice on how to care for your mouth following your tooth removal.
And if you happen to be nervous, we can also help relieve your dental anxiety and increase your comfort with dental sedation options!
The Importance Of Replacing Missing Teeth
If you have a tooth removed, it’s important that you replace it as soon as possible for several reasons, including:
