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.
