Our friendly dentists are dedicated to helping you keep your smile healthy for life. Certain conditions, however, may make tooth extraction (tooth removal) the best option for improving your oral health. Tooth extraction may be necessary if:
- A tooth has become impacted (stuck in the jawbone and gum tissue)
- A tooth is significantly damaged or decayed, making an effective restoration (with a dental filling or crown) impossible
- There is not enough room in the mouth for all of the teeth, causing misalignment and overcrowding of the teeth
- Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and surrounding bone
One of the benefits of tooth extraction is that it can prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. Our friendly dental team will ensure that your tooth extraction in Vicksburg, Mississippi is as comfortable as possible. Before the tooth extraction procedure, we will review tooth replacement options with you and help you decide on the dental restoration that is best for your smile. We offer dental implants, bridges, and other tooth replacement options at Vicksburg Family Dental. If you are experiencing any type of tooth pain, we urge you to contact our dental office as soon as possible.
