Tooth Extractions Charlottesville VA
An extraction is the removal of a natural tooth. A tooth may need extraction because it is severely decayed, has broken in a way that cannot be repaired, or has advanced gum disease. Teeth are sometimes also removed in preparation for braces, or because they are impacted (poorly positioned in the mouth).
At Lee Family Dentistry, we carefully consider whether tooth extraction is necessary, and take the time to thoroughly explain your options for replacing your missing tooth before we extract it. During the extraction, we work hard to ensure that the procedure is as comfortable and efficient as possible. After removal of the tooth, we always go over post-operative instructions with you, and are available after hours should you have any questions or concerns.
