Extractions

A Gentle Removal of Teeth

Dr. Shaffer may determine that you need a tooth removed for various reasons. Any tooth that is affected by disease, severe decay, or trauma may be a candidate for extraction.

 

Before recommending extraction, our team will investigate all possible avenues for saving your tooth. However, if it is not possible to keep your natural tooth, the next best thing is to  extract. Your comfort and satisfaction is our priority.

While it may not be pleasant, it doesn’t not need to be stressful or painful. Our team can offers sedation options for your procedure if you would prefer help relaxing. Oral conscious sedation can put you into a relaxed state for your extraction.

We’ll provide you with detailed care instructions to help speed recovery at home and talk about choices for tooth replacement such as bridges, partial dentures or dental implants.
