How Dental Extractions Can Benefit Your Dental Health

Most patients want to keep their natural teeth whenever possible. At Curtis Family Dentistry, we understand this, and we are committed to helping our patients repair and restore their natural teeth to keep their oral health in tip-top shape, but sometimes, this just isn’t possible.

If you’re looking to schedule a dental extraction with an experienced dentist in or near Mooresville, we would be happy to help. Our knowledgeable team can examine your smile to determine if a dental extraction or another restorative treatment will work best for your unique situation.

How Will I Know If I Need a Dental Extraction?

It’s not always easy for patients to tell what treatments they need. In some cases, you may have very few to no noticeable symptoms. In other cases, a patient may be experiencing severe pain, tooth and gum sensitivity, or notice that their teeth and gums look darker. This may indicate that an extraction is needed, or just a root canal.

We recommend scheduling routine visits with our office so we can examine your teeth and gums regularly and add services to your treatment plan as needed. If you notice any unusual sensitivity, pain, swelling, black or brown spots on your teeth, or any other concerning changes, please contact our office so we can assist.

The Benefits of Dental Extractions

How could removing a tooth be more beneficial than repairing it? If a tooth has incurred a great amount of damage, or if it has undergone extensive restorative dental work in the past, removing it and replacing it could be the ideal choice. Teeth that are weak and susceptible to harmful bacteria pose a great risk to patients, so if a crown or bridge can no longer be used to protect and support a tooth, removing it may be a better option.

Restorative Treatments at Curtis Family Dentistry

Our practice provides a variety of durable tooth-replacement options, including dentures and dental implants, that can be customized to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. These sturdy restorations can help you eat and speak with confidence and reduce your risk of developing an infection, as opposed to keeping a severely damaged tooth.
