Most of the time, keeping all of your natural teeth is the best decision for your oral health. However, there are times where a tooth is beyond saving due to excessive damage, uncontrolled infection, or other issues. One of our four caring dentists at Davis, Roberts, Boeller, & Rife will help gently guide you through the extraction process while making sure you stay safe and comfortable. Are you thinking you might need a tooth removed soon? Schedule a consultation with us so that you can fully understand your options and learn more about the extraction process.
One of the most common forms of tooth extraction is the removal of wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars. These extra teeth come in long after the rest of your smile has already erupted, meaning there’s less room in your mouth. As a result, wisdom teeth often become infected and need to be taken out as soon as possible to prevent long term damage. We can start planning an extraction if we find warning signs during an examination that your wisdom teeth are going to cause problems.
