How do I know if I may need a tooth extraction?
Tooth extraction is not something we take lightly. In the case of a damaged tooth, it is the last resort after we have exhausted all other options. There are several cases where extraction is the only solution to restore your oral health and protect your smile.
- Decay or infection that we can't resolve any other way
- Advanced gum disease that compromises tissues and bone that support the structure of a tooth
- Broken or fractured teeth that can’t be saved by other methods
- For best results when planning orthodontic treatment or denture therapy
- Removal of wisdom teeth
Understanding Is Important
We don’t perform any tooth extractions at our Vienna, VA dental office until you understand why the procedure is needed. You can be confident that if you need extraction, we will thoroughly explain the reason and how the procedure will benefit you. Our doctors will use state-of-the-art digital x-rays to show you exactly what is happening with the tooth and why we need to remove the tooth.
If you think you may need a tooth removed or have questions about extraction, please call Tysons Dentistry. We will perform a thorough evaluation and make appropriate recommendations based on your needs.
