What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While our dentist strives to help you keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime, certain diseases and conditions may make tooth extraction the best available treatment option. If you need a tooth extraction in Owasso, Oklahoma, Dr. Michael Sanchez, DDS and our team will make certain that you feel comfortable throughout your time at our office. We are also happy to provide tooth replacement services as needed.

Do I need tooth extraction?

We may recommend tooth extraction in the following cases:

• A tooth is so severely decayed that an effective restoration is impossible
• There is not enough room for all of the teeth in the mouth, resulting in crowding that cannot be corrected through orthodontics alone (extraction may be needed in preparation for orthodontic treatment)
• Serious infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure

Tooth extraction may also be needed for children if a baby tooth (primary tooth) is not falling out as normal and is blocking the way for erupting permanent teeth. We welcome you to call or visit us at Renaissance Dental today for more information. We look forward to improving your dental health!
