The health and longevity of your smile is our first priority at Great Lakes Family Dental. While we always do everything we can to save your natural teeth, there are certain times when our dentists may recommend a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction in Jackson, Michigan, is the process by which we remove a tooth from your jaw. We will only suggest a tooth extraction if we feel it is absolutely necessary to the health of your smile. The most common reasons for tooth extractions include:
- Irreparable tooth decay or damage
- Severe dental trauma
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Preparation for orthodontic work
- An overcrowded smile
Dr. Kinra, and Dr. Kinra use the greatest skill and care when removing a tooth. We are here to guide you through each step of the process, including how to take care of your smile once you get home. Our team understands the impact losing a tooth can have and provides multiple replacement options, such as bridges, dentures, and dental implants. If you have questions about tooth extractions, we encourage you to give our office a call today. We would be happy to answer all of your questions and help your family in any way we can.
