With regular dental visits and good home care, it is rarely necessary to remove a tooth. However, in some instances our dentists may determine that it is best to remove a tooth.
This may be due to:
- Large dental cavities, cracks, or infections that make a tooth unable to be restored
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Extra teeth, severe crowding, or malformed teeth
- Teeth that are loose because of advanced periodontal disease
The dentists at Oz Family Dentistry are experts at evaluating teeth and determining if it will be best to restore or remove them, and they will work with you to find a treatment plan that best serves your needs. When teeth are extracted, there are almost always replacement options, including dental bridges, dental implants, or partial dentures.
