At Cochran Family Dental, we will do everything in our power to save your teeth, but when a tooth extraction is necessary, we have the skill, knowledge, and experience to remove your tooth safely and provide restorative care.
Sometimes a tooth infection can become severe enough that if left in your mouth, your infected tooth can jeopardize the health of your other teeth and potentially cause you serious harm. In cases like this, the best thing we can do to protect your overall health is to remove your tooth. Tooth extractions may also be necessary when your wisdom teeth start to erupt. If your mouth doesn’t have room for your wisdom teeth and the teeth are likely to become impacted, Dr. Cochran may recommend a tooth extraction or oral surgery.
The Benefits of Tooth Extractions
- Tooth extractions protect patients from infected tooth related diseases and issues.
- Removing a tooth can clean and remove bacteria that could have a negative impact on your health.
- When a severely infected or decayed tooth is removed, it minimizes the risk that other teeth will become infected.
- Tooth extractions can provide relief and comfort for patients who are suffering from severe toothaches.
A severe toothache could signify a more serious dental problem. If you need teeth pulled, your comfort is one of our top priorities. We will make sure the area is numb, and will provide a gentle, and professional tooth extraction. Before the extraction, we will discuss your situation with you individually and discuss your options for a tooth restoration after the procedure is complete. We can perform a bone graft if necessary to maintain bone structure after extractions.
