Dr. Mark Anderson may recommend a tooth extraction if your tooth is too badly damaged to be restored. Our experienced dentist and team will carefully examine your teeth to determine if an extraction is the right option for you, and if so, which type of replacement is right for your smile. Call Anderson Family Dentistry today at 480-633-3447 to make an appointment and learn more about tooth extractions in Mesa, Arizona.
Our dental team prioritizes preserving your natural teeth whenever possible, but there are cases where a tooth extraction may be necessary for your oral health. There are several reasons why you may need a tooth extraction, such as:
- The tooth is extensively damaged due to decay or trauma and cannot be repaired
- The tooth is infected, and the infection has spread to the surrounding bone and tissue
- The tooth is causing crowding and preventing other teeth from erupting or shifting properly
- The tooth is impacted, meaning it is stuck beneath the gumline and cannot emerge
We understand that the thought of having a tooth extracted can be daunting, which is why we take every measure to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Our team will provide you with detailed pre- and postoperative instructions to help you prepare for and recover from the extraction.
After the tooth has been extracted, we will discuss tooth replacement options with you. We offer a range of restorative solutions, including dental bridges, implants and dentures, to help you restore your smile’s function and appearance.
If you are experiencing dental pain or discomfort and suspect you may need a tooth extraction, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with our dentist. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the procedure or our tooth replacement options.
