At Pine Ridge Dental, our dentists and team are committed to helping you keep your smile healthy for life. This includes helping you keep your teeth in good health. In certain cases, however, we may recommend removing a tooth in order to benefit your overall oral health. We may suggest tooth extraction in order to:
- Alleviate crowding if the teeth are severely crowded and the issue cannot be resolved through orthodontic treatment alone
- Prevent the spread of infection if a tooth is severely infected and cannot be treated with root canal therapy
- Improve your overall oral health if a tooth is so badly decayed or otherwise damaged that a restoration or other treatment cannot effectively save the tooth
- Eliminate the risk of infection if your immune system is compromised (for example, if you are having an organ transplant or are receiving chemotherapy)
No matter the reason for your tooth extraction, you can rest assured that we will do all we can to provide you with a comfortable experience at our office. If needed, we are also happy to discuss tooth replacement options with you.
