As our dentists, Dr. Seung Lee and Dr. Joseph Fink can tell you, the best teeth for your smile are your own, and because of that, we want to make sure that we save your teeth whenever we can. However, there may be times when your tooth is too damaged or decayed to be saved, or it may be a hazard to your other teeth. If this is the case for you, we may suggest a tooth extraction in Aurora, Colorado. Our team at Del Mar Family Dental Care will help you feel comfortable throughout your treatment, help you understand your aftercare needs and provide you with restoration options. If you have a tooth that has been giving you problems, call 303-577-0062 today to plan your appointment.
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. 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.
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
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. For more information on tooth extraction and to schedule your personalized consultation at our friendly dental office, we invite you to call or visit us today. We are committed to improving your smile!
