Dr. Rachel Meyer and her skilled team are dedicated to providing you with the most effective, conservative dental treatment possible. We strive to keep your smile healthy and functional. While we do everything we can to keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime, some cases may require the removal of a tooth. This is called tooth extraction. We may recommend a tooth extraction if a tooth cannot be successfully restored and should be removed to prevent further damage to your smile. Your dentist may recommend tooth extraction in Los Alamos, New Mexico, in the following cases:
- A tooth is so severely decayed or injured that an effective restoration (with a crown, filling, etc.) is impossible
- Severe overcrowding, caused by too many teeth in the mouth, is affecting the health and function of your smile
- A serious infection has destroyed a large portion of a tooth and supporting bone structure
Our caring team will make certain that the entire tooth extraction treatment is as comfortable and painless as possible. We are also happy to discuss tooth replacement options with you so that you can return your smile to optimal function, health, and beauty.
