Our goal at TLC Escondido Dental is to preserve and protect your teeth and smile. However, sometimes our dentists may need to recommend a tooth extraction as the best option for your oral health.
What Is a Tooth Extraction?
A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from your mouth. When you receive a tooth extraction, our dentists or periodontist will take care to remove the tooth as gently as possible from your mouth to give you a more comfortable experience. We will provide you with detailed post-op instructions to help you heal and recover, and will work closely with you to determine which type of replacement option is right for you.
When Is Tooth Extraction Recommended?
Our dentists may recommend a tooth extraction if:
- Severe infection has destroyed much of the tooth and its supporting bone structure
- Significant decay has damaged a tooth beyond the point where it can be successfully restored
- Overcrowding causes teeth to be misaligned or unable to fit properly in the mouth
- Injury or trauma has damaged a tooth beyond where it can be repaired and restored
