When a tooth can no longer be saved due to disease, crowding, or damage, it may need to be extracted. In prioritizing each patient’s comfort and long-term oral health throughout the extraction process, Seneca Smiles is proud to be a leading provider of extractions throughout Great Falls.
Reasons to Perform a Tooth Extraction
With a biomimetic approach to dentistry, we aim to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. However, in some cases, tooth extractions are the best option to protect the patient’s oral health. In these cases, an extraction may:
- Curb the spread of severe tooth decay
- Prevent future complications and disruptions to surrounding teeth
- Alleviate severe dental pain
We strive to provide effective conservative treatment whenever possible and recommend tooth extractions only when necessary.
Patient Comfort During Extractions
Before the tooth is removed, we numb the area around the tooth to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Dr. Lam will then remove the tooth, and the mouth will naturally heal by forming a blood clot in the treatment area. Our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that you heal properly from the extraction.
