Our goal is to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible, using the latest techniques and technologies.

Understanding Tooth Extractions

Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. It is typically required when decay has made the tooth non-salvageable, when there is severe periodontal disease, or to help alleviate crowding in the mouth before orthodontics.

Benefits of Professional Tooth Extractions

  • Pain Relief: Removal of a damaged or decayed tooth can immediately alleviate pain.
  • Prevents Further Infection: Extracting a compromised tooth can prevent the spread of infection to other areas of the mouth.
  • Improves Oral Health: Helps to maintain overall oral health and prepares the mouth for further dental work like implants or dentures.
