While preserving natural teeth is always the primary goal, there are instances where tooth extractions become necessary to maintain overall oral health.

When Would I Need Tooth Extractions?

Tooth extractions may be recommended for various reasons. Common scenarios include severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth or crowding issues. In cases where a tooth is damaged beyond repair or poses a threat to surrounding teeth and tissues, our dentist may suggest extraction as a viable solution.

What to Expect

We will start with a consultation at Smile Design Studio of Heathrow, including X-rays, to determine whether you need a tooth extraction. On the day of your procedure, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area around the tooth. Dr. Mark Falco will then carefully remove the tooth, and in some cases, may recommend post-extraction care to aid in the healing process.

Benefits of Tooth Extractions

While the thought of losing a tooth may be daunting, extractions can offer several benefits. They can relieve pain, prevent the spread of infection and pave the way for necessary dental treatments like orthodontics. Tooth extractions ultimately contribute to overall oral health and well-being, allowing for a brighter and healthier smile.
