We hate to say ‘goodbye’ to any of your teeth, but sometimes it’s necessary treatment.
The need for an extraction can be due to many different factors—including decay (cavity), periodontal (gum) disease, trauma (the extent of which is too significant to restore), or poor positioning (such as impacted wisdom teeth or teeth that need to be removed for orthodontic treatment). But the good news is: at Schultz Family Dental, Dr. Schultz and her team will do everything they can to make your treatment as painless and forgettable as possible!
When talking about removing any of your teeth, it’s also equally as important to discuss options to replace them. The removal of one or more teeth can cause other dental problems—such as shifting teeth, changes to your chewing ability, and discomfort in your joints. If an extraction is necessary, Dr. Schultz will discuss all of your tooth replacement options with you, so we can restore your beautiful smile to its former glory!
