When Is a Tooth Extraction Needed?

A tooth extraction is performed only after all alternatives have been considered and ruled out. Situations that may lead to an extraction include:

  • Infection or risk of infection from decay (may require emergency tooth extraction)
  • A tooth that is severely damaged from trauma (may require emergency tooth extraction)
  • Impacted wisdom teeth (results in a wisdom tooth extraction)
  • Overcrowded teeth (often requires orthodontic treatment)

What Is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is a routine procedure for Dr. Clay Sligh, though in some instances, an emergency tooth extraction may be called for. The procedure includes:

  • X-rays to assess the location, size, and position of the tooth to be removed to help determine the extent of the procedure
  • An assessment of the anesthesia and sedation options that will best serve your needs, allowing for a pain-free, less-than-memorable experience
  • The careful removal of the tooth, which often includes a bone-preserving graft

Great choice for my family

Dr Sligh and his team have been a great choice for my family. They have put my needs first, and understand my priorities. We created a long term dental plan together, instead of just a quick fix, which financially puts me at ease and I feel like I am in control. Highly recommended!
