At Village Family Dentist in Granville, we use every measure to prevent tooth loss in our patients. However, there are certain occasions where a tooth extraction is a necessary treatment. At your appointment, we can discuss your condition, treatment options, and potential outcomes so that you can make the best decision possible in regards to your care.
There are several reasons a tooth extraction may become necessary, including oral conditions that may form as a result of:
Left untreated, teeth that are extremely decayed, damaged or infected can evolve into a more serious problem. Other teeth may become damaged, infection and abscesses can form, and ultimately patients can develop sepsis (a severe infection of the blood).
Wondering if you may be a candidate for a tooth extraction? Contact our Granville dental office today to schedule your appointment! We would be happy to evaluate your teeth, gums and overall health to determine if a tooth extraction is the right treatment for you.
