At Landry Family and Orthodontic Dentistry, our goal is to protect and preserve your teeth as much as possible. However, sometimes preventive care is not enough, and we may need to remove a tooth from your mouth. Dr. Cynthia Landry may recommend a tooth extraction for a number of reasons, such as:
- If the tooth is too damaged to be repaired or restored
- If the tooth is threatening the health and function of your other teeth
- When your teeth are crowded and there are too many to properly fit into the dental arch
- When severe infection and/or decay has destroyed much of the tooth and supporting bone structure
We take great care when removing your tooth from your mouth to be as gentle as possible. We want you to feel comfortable during your appointment, and will provide you with local anesthetic to minimize pain and discomfort during the extraction procedure. We will also provide you with post-extraction care instructions to help you heal quickly and without complications.
Our dentist and team also understand that losing a tooth can be upsetting, and we will work with you after your extraction to determine a suitable replacement and restore the health, appearance and function of your smile.
