Tooth Removal Services In Farmington NM and Rio Rancho
At Sundance Dental and Orthodontics in Farmington NM and Bloomfield NM, we treat tooth extraction as a last resort. Our teams will do everything in our power to help you keep a full, natural smile for as long as possible. Restorative dentistry innovations allow us to save teeth even after severe infection and damage. However, in some rare cases, a tooth extraction may actually be the best thing for your smile, comfort, and health.
Some reasons for tooth removal include:
- If the patient is suffering from advanced periodontal disease or bone loss, a tooth extraction may be necessary in some cases.
- If a tooth infection has become so severe that it threatens the health of the patient or the patient’s other teeth, having the tooth pulled might be the best thing for the patient’s oral health.
- In some cases, tooth extraction can be a part of orthodontic correction.
- Malpositioned teeth or fractured teeth or tooth roots can lead to extraction in some cases.
Have Your Tooth Extracted With Gentle, Compassionate Care From a Dentist You Trust
When we perform a tooth extraction at Sundance Dental and Orthodontics in Rio Rancho or Farmington NM, we make patient care our top priority. Our teams at Sundance cares about each of our patients and wants each patient to enjoy higher quality oral health with lower stress and greater comfort. Before you have your tooth pulled, your dentist will numb the area around the tooth. We will offer painkillers and a cold compress after routine extractions. Your dentist will perform the extraction by separating the tooth from the ligament that is holding it in place. After your extraction, we will discuss your restorative options, and take the next step toward a restored smile.
