Our goal here at Wolf and Osborne LTD is to protect your teeth and prevent any dental issues from developing. However, in some cases Dr. Kevin Wolf and Dr. Larry Osborne may need to recommend a tooth extraction to remove a badly damaged tooth from your mouth.

When Is A Tooth Extraction Recommended?

Tooth extractions are recommended when:

  • Severe infection has destroyed much of the tooth and its supporting bone structure
  • Significant decay has damaged a tooth beyond the point where it can be restored
  • Injury or trauma has caused extensive damage to the tooth and it cannot be successfully restored
  • Overcrowding prevents your teeth from fitting properly in your mouth

Tooth Extraction Procedure

When you receive a tooth extraction, our dentists and team will take care to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. We will provide an anesthetic to minimize your discomfort and will remove your tooth as gently as possible. After your extraction, we will provide you with detailed post-op instructions to help you heal and recover. Our dentists will also work with you to determine which type of tooth replacement option is right for your oral health and smile.
