Our ultimate goal at Imperial Dental Care is to get all of our patients on the track to optimal dental health and function. Each patient will have different needs and situations along this journey. So, while our dentist and team try to avoid the extraction (removal) of a tooth, there are situations in which this is the best course of action.

Reasons why we might recommend a tooth extraction include:

  • You have a severe oral infection that has destroyed a large part of your tooth or bone structure
  • You have a tooth that’s been damaged beyond repair, making restoration an unsuccessful treatment option
  • You have an excess tooth or crowding caused by having too many teeth

Either before or after having a tooth extracted, Dr. Samantha Hughey-Wence will go over the options you have for replacing your missing tooth. With the right restoration, your smile can be returned to its most optimal health and appearance.

We use a high level of skill and precision when extracting a tooth and do all we can to make your experience as comfortable as possible. You are also provided with post-extraction care instructions that tell you exactly how to care for your smile as it heals.
