Extractions

At Filliman Dental, we are always doing our best to save teeth. However, there are instances where tooth extraction is necessary, and sometimes, the only option. It is important to perform extractions carefully and to be as atraumatic as possible to preserve the remaining bone. This will leave the door open in the case you want to pursue replacing the tooth with an implant or other methods of tooth replacement.

Tooth extraction may be necessary if:

  • The tooth is severely broken or decayed
  • Not enough tooth structure remains to properly restore the tooth
  • Severe infection
  • Bone loss due to periodontal disease
  • Root resorption
