Tooth Extraction in Hartford, CT
At JP Dental, extracting a tooth is never our first choice. Maintaining a smile that is both whole and healthy is important, so we will always look for the most conservative treatment before we even consider extraction. However, if there are no other options available, it may be necessary to extract a tooth to preserve your overall oral health.
Even the most confident dental patients can be overwhelmed by the idea of tooth extraction. It is understandable, but your anxiety can be a thing of the past when you feel safe and secure in the hands of professionals who are always focused on your needs.
Your Comfort Is Our Highest Priority
We want you to know that when you are with us, you have our complete and undivided attention. Our schedule always allows enough time to make sure you get the care and attention you deserve. We don’t have to rush through procedures to get to the next patient, which gives us the freedom to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible.
Most importantly, we are here to support you with care and compassion. Our doctors and professional team are skilled at performing efficient, comfortable extractions. That expertise helps to ensure that your procedure is as stress-free as possible.
Why Extraction Is Necessary
If a tooth is damaged beyond repair due to damage or extensive decay, extraction is usually the only solution that makes sense. Reasons tooth extraction may be necessary include:
- Severe damage, decay, or gum disease that cannot be treated with a root canal
- Impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth
- A crack or fracture of a tooth below the gum line
- Preparation for placement of full or partial dentures
- Preparation for orthodontic treatment
Before we plan your tooth extraction, we’ll take some time to talk to you about planning for tooth replacement. There are many options to choose from, including dental implants, fixed bridges, and full or partial dentures. Together we will decide on a solution that is most appropriate in your particular case.
Please Contact Our Office
In many cases, we can plan your tooth extraction in advance. But situations sometimes arise where tooth pain is severe enough that we need to remove the tooth quickly to avoid further discomfort. We always set aside time for our emergency patients, and we will do everything we can to see you as soon as possible – often the same day.
