At Black Hills Area Dental, our team is happy to discuss tooth extractions as an alternative solution when saving the natural tooth is not an option. We have high-quality technology and a streamlined process to get you out of pain quickly. You’ll leave our office with a healthier, more comfortable smile.
Reasons to Get a Tooth Extraction
While it’s necessary to brush and floss regularly, some teeth may have extensive damage that other restorative procedures cannot resolve. A tooth extraction eliminates these issues by completely removing the affected tooth.
Situations where our team may recommend tooth removal include:
- Your teeth have severe decay or gum tissue problems
- You need more space due to overcrowded teeth
- You suffer from gum disease, resulting in poor bone density
- You have severely broken or cracked teeth
Benefits of Tooth Extractions
Our team at Black Hills Area Dental understands the many benefits of tooth extractions and can discuss them with you to determine if an extraction is the right fit. Our dental professionals suggest tooth extractions to:
- Relieve pain from tooth decay or cracked teeth
- Prevent future tooth damage by removing affected teeth
- Create space in your mouth for orthodontic procedures
In some cases, other services are more suitable than removal. Dr. Samuleson can further discuss the advantages of tooth extraction and help you determine whether you should consider a different service.
Dr. Samuelson can perform basic or surgical tooth extractions for problematic teeth or wisdom teeth. Our friendly team can keep you comfortable throughout the process and instruct you on steps to take during recovery to ensure the best result. We’ll also prescribe medications to aid infection prevention and pain management if necessary.
