Extractions

Comfortable Tooth Removal

Female dental patient happy that her tooth is numb before extractionAlthough it is always our goal to help you preserve your natural teeth, sometimes teeth reach a point where they are no longer restorable. Dr. Goldston may need to remove your tooth in order to return your smile to a more healthy condition.

Some of the reasons why we have to pull teeth may include conditions such as:

  • Periodontal Disease
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Trauma
  • Severe Tooth Decay
  • Full Mouth Rehabilitation
  • Orthodontic Therapy

The most important part of your dental extraction is keeping you comfortable. Dr. Goldston will numb the area around the tooth to minimize any discomfort that you might feel. Sedation is also available.

Socket Preservation

Once a tooth has been removed, it is natural for bone loss to occur around the empty tooth socket. This can weaken your jaw, compromise the stability of adjacent teeth, and complicate future tooth replacement. Dr. Goldston takes special steps after the extraction to preserve the bone around the tooth socket so that these risks can be avoided.

Tooth Replacement

This prevents the other teeth from drifting out of place. We will work with you to plan which type of tooth replacement option is best, prior to your extraction.
