At Desert Dental Group, our goal is to help you keep your teeth strong and healthy for a lifetime of attractive smiles. But there are times when our dentists may recommend a tooth extraction as the best option for your smile. While we strive to avoid removing a tooth, there may be some conditions that make a tooth extraction the first step towards restoring your oral health. These conditions include:
- Severe infection and the loss of significant tooth structure and supporting bone structure
- Significant decay that has damaged the tooth beyond repair
- Overcrowding of the teeth
- Serious tooth damage, such as a badly broken or fractured tooth
If this is the case for you, Dr. Brett Barney and Dr. Jonathan Hall will carefully evaluate the tooth to determine if it can be saved. If it must be extracted, we will remove it as gently as possible. Our team will provide you with detailed post-op instructions to help you heal and recover, and we will work with you to find the most appropriate replacement for your missing tooth. Depending on your individual needs and the number of teeth extracted, your replacement options may be a dental implant, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
