Extractions in Colorado Springs, CO
At Springs Family Dental, we believe that no one should suffer because of dental pain. If you find that you are experiencing pain due to a tooth that is irreparably damaged, we can help.
A dental extraction is the removal of a severely damaged or untreatable tooth. This can be caused by dental decay from insufficient oral hygiene, damage from an accident, or a variety of medical conditions. Our ultimate goal is always to allow you to keep your natural teeth, but if we find that we cannot treat your tooth and restore its normal functioning and appearance, then an extraction may be necessary.
When Do We Perform a Dental Extraction?
A tooth extraction may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common reasons we might recommend extraction include:
- Damage to a tooth that can’t be repaired with a crown or other treatment
- Damage to the root of a tooth
- An infection or other situation that puts other teeth at risk
- A failed root canal treatment
- Preparation for orthodontics (crowding)
- Preparation for dentures (removal of unhealthy teeth)
- An impacted or otherwise problematic wisdom tooth
