Great Teeth. Great Smile. Great Life.


Dr. Smith, aims to help you keep all of your natural teeth. However, sometimes patients come to us with less than ideal oral health. When necessary, we can perform an extraction to help you maintain your oral health. Before deciding on extraction, you and one of our dentists will discuss any alternative treatments, such as root canal therapy, that may better fit your needs. Extraction may be recommended for one or more of the following reasons:

  • To prepare for orthodontic or cosmetic treatment
  • Advanced periodontal disease is present
  • Advanced decay is present
  • A tooth is infected or at risk for infection

In many cases, tooth extraction is the last resort in maintaining optimal oral health. To keep your teeth healthy, bright, and functional, it is very important to consistently visit the dentist for your regular cleanings and exams as well as maintain a proper home hygiene routine of daily flossing and brushing. For more information on extractions, or to schedule your appointment with one of our qualified, comprehensive dentists, please contact us today.
