Tooth Extractions in Sun City, Sun City West, and Litchfield Park, Arizona
We perform tooth extractions with great care and skill. Sometimes at Burns Dentistry, our dentists come across a patient’s dentition that is beyond any possibility of being restored.
If a severely decayed or damaged tooth has escalated to the point of compromising the surrounding teeth, we may recommend a dental extraction.
What Are Tooth Extractions?
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure.
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible.
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth which may be needed to prepare the mouth for orthodontia.
- If periodontal disease (an infection of the tissues and bones that surround and support the teeth have caused a loosening of teeth) it may be necessary to pull the tooth or teeth.
Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function. Some of those options include dental implants, fixed bridges and removable partial dentures.
Our dentist uses great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your dental experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.
