Although we try to prevent it, in some cases a tooth becomes harmful to the rest of your mouth and needs to be removed. Sometimes a tooth will become so infected that the infection is at risk of spreading to other teeth and even your jaw. In other cases, a wisdom tooth will cause your teeth to shift in your mouth and create other dental problems. There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be pulled, which is why our dentists at Derby Family Dentistry provide the highest quality care for you throughout the entire process.
We understand that a tooth extraction may cause a bit of anxiety, which is why our entire team at Derby Family Dentistry will do everything we can to put you at ease. Dr. Stark and Dr. Norden will make sure you understand what the procedure will entail and also what recovery will be like. During the procedure, our dentists will open the gums around the tooth and begin the extraction process. The tooth can often be removed in one piece, but in some cases it may be necessary to break the tooth into smaller sections to allow for easier extraction.
