How do I know if I need a dental extraction?

However, an extraction because of decay or trauma is always a last resort. Still, we offer tooth replacement options to restore your smile following tooth removal—everything from a bridge to a dental implant in El Dorado Hills, CA.

In some cases, you may need a tooth pulled for cosmetic reasons—for example, as a precursor to orthodontics. Your jaw is simply not big enough to support a full set of teeth. This type of extraction is not noticeable and does not create a smile gap.

If you have encroaching wisdom teeth, your dentist in El Dorado Hills, CA may also recommend dental extractions. These types of removals do not impact the look or function of your smile.

No matter the reason, your gentle dentist in El Dorado Hills, CA will keep you relaxed and numb during the process. If you need extra reassurance, we offer sedation dentistry to see you through.  

If you would like to schedule an exam or chat with our top dentist, contact our dental office today. We are here to help you through the extraction process.
