A tooth extraction is not something your dentist wants to perform – whenever possible, the goal during restorative dental work is to preserve a tooth. Unfortunately, this is not always something that can be recommended. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we are prepared to help you return to good oral health by safely removing a tooth in poor condition. Once this is done, we can work with you to restore your full smile by planning the appropriate prosthetic dental work. By pursuing plans to restore your smile after an extraction, we can limit the time you spend with a gap between teeth.

When Is It Necessary To Extract A Tooth?

The goal during any planned dental care is to perform the most conservative procedure that can effectively address a tooth problem. If you have a problem with tooth decay, we will provide a dental filling when possible – if a filling is not going to provide enough support, we can use a dental crown. Unfortunately, if a tooth is too badly damaged in an injury, or if there is no way to effectively address an infection, the only option left can be an extraction. While the idea of extraction might make you nervous, you should know that having an unhealthy tooth removed can be an important step towards regaining your oral health.

We Can Make Sure Your Smile Is Fully Cared For When You Have A Serious Problem

By removing your problem tooth, your dentist protects you from problems that can cause unwelcome complications. Bacteria from a badly infected tooth can exit through that tooth’s roots, and create new health issues for you. Once the tooth is removed, and any issues with infection are addressed, we can start making plans to restore your full smile. It is often possible to begin planning prosthetic dental work once an extraction is complete.

Restoring Your Smile With A Dental Bridge

A dental bridge remains in place thanks to a pair of dental crowns that are set on neighboring teeth. Your dentist can design and place a custom bridge for you after your extraction in order to give you back a complete smile. In addition to helping you regain confidence in the way you look, your crown is stable enough to help you bite and chew in a way that feels natural to you!
