When a tooth becomes irreparably damaged, the best option may involve the extraction of the tooth. A tooth extraction can help prevent further damage and infection and help you on your way to achieving excellent dental health and restoring your gorgeous, functional smile. Our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction in Independence, Missouri, for the time when a tooth is so seriously damaged, injured or infected that it cannot effectively be restored through another treatment. Our experienced team is committed to providing you and your family with the best possible experience here at our office. Dr. Tiffany Teegarden’s gentle manner, combined with effective anesthesia, will ensure that your treatment will be both comfortable and safe.
Following your tooth extraction, your mouth will heal over the next several days. We recommend that you follow Dr. Tiffany Teegarden’s post-treatment instructions to avoid infection and guarantee a healthy mouth. The removed tooth can then be restored with one of the following options:
- A dental bridge
- A partial denture
- A dental implant
