When are tooth extractions necessary?

As dentists, it is our job to help you to preserve your natural teeth for as long as possible. We can do this through you taking care of your teeth at home and by attending regular appointments with our professional team here at our offices. If any restorative work is needed, we can carry out the necessary repairs. However, there are some instances in which it simply isn’t possible to save a tooth and the best solution is actually to remove it. This process is known as an extraction and will only ever be performed where we feel it is absolutely necessary.

Am I a good candidate for sedation dentistry?

People put off visiting the dentist for many different reasons.

Unfortunately, by avoiding the dentist, these patients are inadvertently putting their oral health and even their overall health and wellbeing at risk. This is because patients who have oral health problems are more likely to be diagnosed with a chronic health condition such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even some forms of cancer.
