Choose the Best When Tooth Extractions Become a Necessity
Your smile is such an important part of who you are, and we want to do everything we can to protect it and give you the confidence you need to love the way you look. Unfortunately, there may be times when tooth extractions are necessary in order to protect your oral health. When those times come and you want to preserve your smile as naturally as possible, come to Arlington Dental Team.
Tooth Removal Is Serious Business
There are many reasons a tooth must be removed. Even if you are brushing and flossing regularly and keeping your twice annual appointments for cleanings and exams, you may deal with any of the following problems that lead to tooth extractions:
- Misshapen baby tooth with long roots that stop it from falling out
- Excessive tooth decay
- Orthodontic correction
- Wisdom teeth problems
A tooth extraction is often necessary to protect the health of the surrounding teeth. Decay in one tooth may spread to another, and extraction may be the best option. If a baby tooth won’t fall out and the permanent tooth can’t come in, you may need a dentist appointment to remove it in order to prevent significant shifting that can lead to crooked teeth.
Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that your smile is as natural and as healthy as possible. If that involves a tooth extraction, our implant dentist can also help to replace your missing teeth with those that look natural. We can discuss the best option for your mouth during a consultation.
If you need a tooth extracted, your dentist may choose to do it during a regular appointment, or may require an extra visit to the dentist. Either way, our goal is to ensure that you are comfortable with your treatment. We customize a plan for every individual patient, because we know your mouth is unique.
