At HJ Dental, we will always try to save your natural tooth if possible. Sometimes there are reasons a tooth needs to be pulled. It could be a baby tooth that won’t grow anymore and is hindering the permanent tooth from coming through. In other instances, a permanent tooth could have decay and be affecting the teeth around it. There are many options if you need to have a permanent tooth removed. A dental implant or bridge may be something your dentist will discuss as an option to put in place of your missing tooth.

At our office, we offer several sedation options to make you comfortable during your visit. If you are in need of an extraction, sedation is offered to make you feel relaxed and at ease during your appointment. We will make sure you are completely comfortable during your visit. Once you are relaxed, your dentist will carefully remove the tooth.

There are benefits to having teeth extracted. Removing a baby tooth can allow the permanent tooth to come through properly. Removing a permanent tooth that has decay can save you from further problems by protecting the surrounding teeth from getting damaged as well. An extraction can really make the difference to save your smile! If you think you might need to have a tooth extracted, give us a call to set up a consultation!
