Our goal at Salem Family Dental and Orthodontics is to always keep your smile in good health. While we strive to repair infected or damaged teeth, there are some circumstances when these teeth would do more harm than good. In these cases, Dr. Bansal, Dr. Chawla and Dr. Jun may recommend the removal of the tooth. This is called a tooth extraction. We will only suggest a tooth extraction in Salem, Massachusetts if it is absolutely necessary.
The most common reason for a tooth extraction is irreparable decay and infection that has killed the tooth. While the tooth has died, the infection lives on and can quickly move to other areas of your smile. In order to protect the rest of your smile from being damaged and suffering the same fate, we will remove the tooth and ensure all infected portions of your surrounding teeth and gums are treated.
We understand that losing a tooth can be traumatic and stressful. We work hard to ensure you are as comfortable as possible before, during, and after treatment. Our caring dentists will also provide you with multiple cosmetic and restorative options to replace the missing tooth so you can find confidence in your smile again. If you are in pain and worried about your teeth, please do not hesitate to contact our dental office today. We are happy to help you in any way we can.
