Our goal is to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and serve you for many, many years. If you are experiencing a problem, we offer a broad range of services to get your oral health back on track.
Why You May Need a Tooth Removed
We can assure you that, at Wellington Dental, we don't recommend extraction lightly. However, there are some cases where a tooth has suffered too much damage and needs to be removed to protect your overall health and well-being. You can be confident that we will exhaust all other possible options before we decide to remove a tooth.
Some cases where are may recommend extraction are:
Severe Decay – A tooth is so damaged by decay that a filling or crown will not be enough to protect it.
Infected Root Canal – An infection of your root canal advances to the point where traditional treatment won’t resolve it.
Preparing for Dentures – One or more teeth needs to be removed to provide the best outcome for denture therapy.
Wisdom Teeth – Wisdom teeth don’t serve any purpose, and since they are far back in your mouth, cleaning them correctly can be difficult, leading to inadequate oral hygiene. Additionally, wisdom teeth can cause crowding and alignment problems if they don’t erupt properly.
We Offer Compassionate, Supportive Care
We know that losing a tooth can be devastating for several reasons. You may feel ashamed or embarrassed that extraction is necessary, which impacts your confidence. Then you have to deal with the procedure itself and figure out what type of tooth replacement is right for you.
We want to assure you that our caring, compassionate team understands your feelings, and our only goal is to get you the help you need to restore your comfort and oral health. If one of our doctors decides that extraction is the best course for you, they will explain exactly why it’s necessary and how it will benefit you in the long term.
You can relax knowing that a caring member of our team will be by your side throughout the procedure to offer moral support or a hand to hold if you are anxious. We will do everything we can to make sure you are comfortable so you can get the critical treatment you need.
