No one wants to be missing a tooth, but unfortunately, on occasion, it may be a necessary treatment. At Tamborello Dentistry, in Magnolia, TX near Conroe and The Woodlands, TX, we try to avoid tooth extractions when possible, but in certain cases, a tooth extraction may be what’s best for your overall oral health. In most cases, a tooth extraction is a simple procedure, but on occasion, more complicated surgical intervention may be required; in these cases, you will receive a referral for an oral surgeon. Some of the common things that lead to a dental extraction may include:
Our Magnolia, TX dentist, Dr. Tamborello, will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and overall oral health to check if your tooth is a candidate for simple extraction. If you are in fact a candidate, we will proceed with the process of scheduling an appointment for extraction.
Following your tooth extraction procedure, Dr. Tamborello will discuss the next step of treatment. The loss of a tooth can have negative effects on your other teeth and oral health. Issues with chewing, teeth shifting and even bone loss may occur. We recommend replacing the missing tooth with an artificial tooth: crowns, bridges, and implants may be an option.
If you have a tooth that is severely decayed, infected or damaged, contact our Magnolia, TX dental office today. Dr. Tamborello would be happy to examine your teeth, gums and oral health to decide if you need a tooth extraction.
