Your teeth are important to your health and your appearance. No one wants to lose a tooth for any reason, yet it can be necessary to remove a tooth if it poses a health risk. At Williamsburg Smile Design, we always do everything in our power to help our patients save their natural teeth with general dentistry before recommending extraction. Our conservative dentistry approach has helped many of our patients save teeth they thought they would need removed.
Dental technology has advanced to offer options to repair teeth that once would have needed to be extracted. Our dental experts will explore all possible options to save a tooth if it has been compromised. Often root canal therapy can be used to repair a broken or severely infected tooth, saving it from extraction. However, if the tooth cannot be saved, our team can ensure that your tooth is removed quickly and painlessly in our relaxed and comfortable office.
Gentle Tooth Removal
If a tooth cannot be saved, it usually means that the root of the tooth has been damaged. This can be due to extreme infection or decay, or caused by trauma to the root below the gum line. Our tooth extraction procedure is done carefully and gently so that our patients do not feel any pain or discomfort. We start by using DentalVibe painless injections to numb the area and offer anesthesia options to make sure our patients are not unduly stressed during the procedure.
Losing a tooth is not the end of the world. At Williamsburg Smile Design, we not only can remove your tooth, we can also restore it. We offer both dentures and dental implants to replace teeth if they must be removed, giving you back your complete, beautiful smile. Contact us today to schedule your consultation for any problem teeth you may need removed.
