Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from your mouth. Dr. Kristen Langworthy makes every effort to help you protect your teeth and avoid an extraction, but in some cases an extraction may be the best way to improve your oral health. Call Langworthy Family Dentistry at 919-762-3239 to learn more about tooth extraction in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, and schedule your appointment with one of our dentists.
Tooth extraction is recommended if your teeth become so damaged or decayed that they must be removed before you can improve your oral health. Some of the conditions that lead to tooth extraction include:
- Severe infection which has destroyed portions of the tooth and supporting bone
- Severe decay which has damaged a tooth beyond repair
- Overcrowding of the teeth in the mouth
When performing an extraction, our dentists will take great care to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. We also provide you with post-op instructions to help you heal and recover more quickly. After you have healed, our dentists will work with you to find a suitable replacement for your tooth or teeth.
