Extractions

Tooth Removal

The main goal of dentistry is to preserve your natural teeth and keep them healthy for as long as possible. However, there are times when it is in a patient’s best interest to have a tooth extracted (removed).

When would this be the case?

  • Severely damaged tooth
  • Impacted tooth
  • Making room for orthodontics (braces) when teeth are crowded
  • Stubborn baby tooth
  • Gum/bone loss that is unable to support the tooth

Whatever the reason, tooth extraction is, more often than not, a very routine procedure when done by an experienced hand.

Dr. Shipley is the first dentist that took time with me and was very professional.
