At dentist Michael Doty’s office, we strive to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums for life. While we work hard to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health. Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction; among these are:
• Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
• Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
• Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Dr. Doty uses great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your dental experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.
After removing the tooth, Dr. Doty provides restorative services to restore the health, beauty, and function of your smile. During your consultation at our office, Dr. Doty will help you determine whether a tooth replacement treatment is needed and which type would best meet your individual needs and desires.
