Planning Your Extraction

It’s important for you to realize that, like any treatment, we take the planning of your tooth extraction seriously because your smile is unique. The location of your tooth and the particular reason for removal both come into play. After examining your smile and speaking with you, we will also take a series of digital X-rays for closer inspection. Once we have mapped out your smile and the tooth in question, we can create a strategic care plan tailored to your smile for efficient treatment that typically requires a single visit.

Protecting Your Comfort

Your comfort is extremely important to us. You should feel very happy to be able to protect your oral health with a tooth extraction. All you need to do is make sure you show up and we will take care of the rest. We take a comprehensive approach to your comfort, ensuring the tooth and surrounding area is numb. We also provide a selection of anesthesia options, so you can enjoy a deeply relaxed procedure.

Replacing Your Tooth
