Extraction in Ellicott City, MD

Has our dentist, recommended tooth extraction for one or more teeth? If you’re feeling nervous, please set your fears at rest. Thanks to powerful technology and dental expertise, there is minimal discomfort associated with the modern tooth extraction procedure.

Extraction refers to the removal of one or more teeth and may be recommended due to the following reasons:

  1. You are suffering from severe tooth decay that has spread to the pulp and roots. In such cases, the only option may be extraction (regular dental checkups and exams can prevent such situations from getting out of hand).
  2. You have an impacted tooth that has been blocked from fully erupting from the gums. This is common with wisdom teeth, for example. Extracting the impacted tooth prevents it from affecting other teeth.
  3. You have suffered severe dental trauma due to an accident, fall, or blow and extraction may be necessary.

Extraction Is Usually the Last Option

Our first preference is always to preserve the tooth. We will evaluate other options to determine if your tooth can be retained. You can trust us to recommend the best solution for your wellbeing.

Untreated tooth decay and neglected oral issues can cause constant pain and interfere with your daily life to a large extent. At times, extraction may be the ideal option to be rid of the problem once and for all. Extractions are usually performed by periodontists and oral surgeons. However, general dentists also offer routine extractions as part of their services.
