When you visit us at Lordstown Dental Clinic, our friendly dentist and dental team strive to help you improve the health and function of your smile. If other types of dental treatment are not viable options for restoring your smile, we may suggest tooth extraction. In certain cases, tooth extraction may be the best option for restoring the health of your smile. Dr. James Rotilie, DDS may recommend tooth extraction if:
- A tooth is so severely decayed or damaged that a dental restoration such as a crown or filling will not effectively restore the tooth
- There are too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
- Infection has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
In addition, we may recommend extraction if you and your dentist have decided that extraction is necessary to proceed with denture treatment. We utilize The Wand®, which is a specialized, computer-monitored anesthesia system, to ensure that your extraction is as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We offer several tooth replacement options, including dentures, partial dentures, and bridges, to restore your smile following the tooth extraction in Warren, Ohio. To learn more about tooth extraction and restorative dentistry, please call or visit us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
