What is a tooth extraction?
When a tooth is completely removed from its socket in the jawbone, it is called a tooth extraction. Tooth extraction may be required in order to improve your oral health and function. The process for extracting a tooth requires just one visit to T.F. Chen DDS, and our caring dental team will ensure that your extraction is as pain-free and comfortable as possible. Following the tooth extraction in Glendale, California we will provide you with instructions to follow during the healing process. Be certain to closely follow these instructions to ensure that your smile heals properly and quickly.
Does my tooth need to be extracted?
Dr. T.F. Chen and Dr. Rosana Chen, our experienced dentists, strive to provide conservative dentistry. In some cases, however, tooth extraction may be the best option to restore the health of your smile. Tooth extraction may be recommended if:
- Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- The tooth is so severely damaged or decayed that a dental crown or filling cannot provide an effective restoration
- There is not enough room for all of the teeth in the mouth
