Dentus Family Dental Surgical Teeth Extraction
At Dentus Family Dental, we know that the idea of extraction or any surgical experience can be unsettling, and want to reassure you we do not decide to have a tooth removed lightly.
In consultation with you, we desire to work together to help you have a healthy and functional dentition, which sometimes means a dental extraction may be your best choice. We are always conscious of providing you with all of your options, possible outcomes and then future treatment options based on the current treatment chosen.
Teeth Extractions at Dentus Family Dental in St. Albert: When do I Need an Extraction?
Most of the time, we recommend a dental extraction when a tooth has reached a point where it is no longer restorable or has an infection present that cannot heal. When making these recommendations, we are looking at your overall health, gum health, tooth function and your long-term dental concerns. We want a smile that not only is healthy but also considers your long-term dental needs for comfort, function and esthetics.
We strive to provide you with as much knowledge as we can, so you can feel comfortable in making an informed decision about your dental health.
We also work collaboratively with other specialists and dentists should your extraction require a referral to another facility.
Root Extraction: When is Root Extraction Necessary?
Sometimes, a tooth breaks off at the gumline leaving the roots behind. Depending on your circumstances and the long-term treatment plan, sometimes the immediate extraction of these roots is required. With careful consideration of your dental needs and your overall health, we may recommend a specialist complete this treatment for you, especially when considering long term restorative plans such as Implants. Our goal is to always provide you with the most conservative and minimally invasive treatment while helping to optimize your oral health and overall health. Contact us and we would be happy to discuss your best treatment options.
