Although adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are some situations where an extraction is the best course of treatment. Lifestyle Dentistry is pleased to offer effective and painless tooth extractions when recommended by your dentist.

Why Might You Require a Tooth Extraction?
A tooth may require extraction for a variety of reasons. Your dentist may recommend an extraction if the tooth is impacted in the gum line (particularly common with wisdom teeth), if there are serious crowding issues, or if the tooth is too damaged, rotted, or loose to be saved with root canal treatment. After the recovery period is over, it will be time to begin taking the prosthodontic or orthodontic steps needed to fill in your smile.
The Tooth Extraction Process
Expressions such as “like getting teeth pulled” show what society at large believes about the dental extraction process, but that unpleasant mental image is a very outdated one. Lifestyle Dentistry has all the right tools to ensure that your extraction will be as comfortable and painless as possible. It usually takes less than an hour, and with a local anesthetic, and sedation, if necessary, the tooth can be painlessly removed. If you have a tooth that is bothering you, there is no need to suffer out of fear of the dentist; the problem is likely to worsen if it is not treated.
