Tooth Extraction in Restorative Dentistry
Extraction is rarely the first choice for treating any tooth; in fact, we believe that the ultimate goal of dentistry is to preserve your healthy and natural teeth and oral structures. However, in some cases, tooth extraction is the best option for the rest of your smile, such as when impacted wisdom teeth threaten the teeth nearby, or a severely damaged tooth cannot be saved. In the case of wisdom teeth, extraction removes the threat so you can enjoy a harmonious smile again, without extra molars pushing against your teeth. In the case of severe tooth damage or infection, extraction stops the condition from growing worse and allows Dr. Hamidi to restore the health and beauty of your smile.
At Your Appointment
During your consultation, Dr. Hamidi will carefully examine your teeth and dental ridges to diagnose the nature and severity of your condition. Your tooth extraction procedure may simply involve removing the tooth, or it may involve oral surgery to safely extract the tooth without harming nearby teeth, bone, and soft tissues. For instance, impacted wisdom teeth that cannot fully erupt from the jawbone, or teeth with fractured or broken teeth roots, often need surgical extraction to remove. Dr. Hamidi will discuss your condition, the type of tooth extraction you may need, and your options for dental sedation during a personal, one-to-one consultation.
