In certain cases, your experienced Santa Clara, California dentist may recommend tooth extraction to improve your oral health. Tooth extraction, or removal, may be the best option for restoring the health of your smile if:

  • Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone
  • A tooth is so severely decayed or damaged that an effective restoration is impossible
  • There is not enough room for all of the teeth in the mouth

Tooth extraction can improve your oral health by preventing infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth and allowing your smile to begin to heal. Dr. Goel will be happy to help you determine the best tooth replacement option following your tooth extraction. We welcome you to call or visit us at Smiles for Life Dental Group to learn more about tooth extraction and our tooth replacement options.
