At Hacienda Heights Family Dentistry, we seek to provide the most conservative treatments possible so that we can preserve your original teeth and protect them from damage. However, some conditions may cause your tooth to be so severely damaged that it cannot be successfully restored. These conditions include:
- Severe infection
- Severe tooth decay
- Trauma or other injury to the tooth
If your tooth or supporting oral structures are damaged beyond the point where they can be successfully restored, our dentist will recommend a tooth extraction. He will remove your tooth from your mouth as gently as possible and provide post-op instructions to help you heal and recover. Anesthetic and sedation options are available to help you feel more comfortable during the extraction procedure.
After your extraction, Dr. Shaileshkumar Bhatt will work with you to find a suitable replacement for your tooth. Your tooth replacement may be an implant, a bridge or a denture depending on your individual needs and the number of teeth you have had extracted. Other treatments, such as bone grafting, may also be required before you can replace your missing tooth or teeth.
