At Friendly Family Dentistry, we care about your oral health and will do everything we can to save your natural teeth. There are times when this is not possible and a tooth extraction is required. A tooth extraction is when the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root, is fully removed from the mouth. Learning that you need to have a tooth extracted can bring forth many emotions. Some patients experience uncertainty and fear, especially if they have never had a tooth extracted before. Many patients become concerned about the length of the recovery.
It can be very emotional to have a tooth extracted or deal with a missing tooth or teeth. After dealing with those emotions, we at Friendly Family Dentistry don’t want choosing a tooth replacement option to be a difficult decision for you. We work with our patients to help them make a decision on an option that is most beneficial to their lifestyle. That being said, our first recommendation and most popular choice among patients are dental implants.
