What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is simply the removal of a tooth. While we work hard to keep your teeth healthy and strong for life, some circumstances may necessitate tooth extraction. No matter the reason for your tooth removal, our dentists will ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible. We offer a number of tooth replacement options at Niles Dental, including dental implants, bridges, and dentures, and we will be happy to consult with you so you can have a complete, functional smile once again.

Do I need tooth extraction?

Dr. Niles and Dr. Niles-Smith may suggest tooth extraction in Woodbridge, Virginia, if a tooth cannot be saved or if your overall oral health would benefit from the removal of the tooth. These cases may include:

  • A severely decayed tooth that cannot be effectively restored with a filling, crown, or other restoration
  • Infection that has caused the destruction of a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • Extreme crowding caused by too many teeth that cannot properly fit in the mouth
