If your tooth is damaged, our skilled dentist may recommend a tooth extraction to remove it from your mouth and prevent any additional damage from occurring. Our goal here at Boulder Valley Dental Center is to help you avoid dental problems through preventive care, but occasionally, a tooth extraction may be needed if a tooth becomes too badly damaged to be restored.
Some of the conditions that may lead to a tooth extraction include:
- Severe infection that has destroyed portions of the tooth and supporting bone
- Severe decay that has damaged the tooth beyond repair
- Overcrowding of the teeth that prevents them from fitting properly in the mouth
Our dentist may also recommend tooth extraction if a tooth needs to be removed before other types of treatment, such as orthodontic treatment, can be provided.
When you receive a tooth extraction, our dentist will use all her skill and experience to remove your tooth as gently as possible. We will also provide you with instructions to help you heal and recover following your procedure. After your tooth has been extracted, our dentist will also work with you to find the right type of replacement option for your smile. Depending on your needs this could be an implant, a bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
