At Arizona Smile Design, we’ll do everything within our power to preserve your natural teeth, because we know they’re the only ones you’ve got. However, in some situations, the only way we can stop the spread of oral health problems that could cause permanent damage is to remove severely decayed or infected teeth. If you have a problem tooth that may need to be removed, we’ll walk you through each and every one of your options, including tooth extractions in our Sun City West, AZ dental office.
A tooth extraction may be necessary for a variety of situations. Here are some cases in which we may suggest this procedure:
Visible decay or physical trauma to a tooth makes it unrepairable.
The root of the tooth is infected and a root canal won’t cure it.
There isn’t enough room in the mouth for orthodontic treatment to work.
The bone holding a tooth in place is damaged due to gum disease.
