Sometimes an extraction is necessary to maintain your oral health. If at all possible, another treatment, such as root canal therapy, will be performed to restore your oral health and allow you to keep the natural tooth, but sometimes that just is not possible. In the case that a tooth does need to be extracted, you can rest assured that your extraction will be:
- Performed in just one visit
Our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction if your tooth has developed severe infection or serious decay and is damaged beyond repair, or if overcrowding makes it impossible for your teeth to fit properly in your mouth. We will perform your procedure as gently as possible and will work with you afterward to find the right type of replacement option so that you can regain a healthy smile.
Following the procedure, Dr. Howard Nguyen will also give you specific instructions on how to care for your mouth. Remember to follow these instructions and feel free to contact the office if you have any questions. If you are experiencing any dental discomfort, such as a toothache, contact our office immediately. We provide emergency care and will do everything we can to ensure that you remain in optimal oral health.
