At Newport Dental, we do everything we can to help you protect your original teeth and prevent them from sustaining damage. However, in some cases, a tooth extraction may be the only solution for regaining your oral health. Our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction if:
- Severe infection has damaged your teeth and supporting structures beyond repair
- Severe decay has damaged your teeth
- Your teeth are overcrowded
- Your tooth has been injured by trauma and is broken beyond the point where it can be restored
If removing your tooth is necessary, our dentist will consult with you first about the extent of the damage and your options for replacing the tooth. We will remove the tooth as gently as possible, providing an anesthetic or sedation option and carefully loosening the tooth before removing it from your mouth. We will provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal properly.
After you have healed, we will be able to provide you with a replacement tooth, such as a bridge, implant or denture, to restore your smile, preserve your bite and improve your quality of life.
