about Tooth Extractions
When is a tooth extraction needed?
If you chip a tooth, its health and function can be restored by receiving a simple cosmetic procedure like dental bonding or a crown. But if you’ve suffered dental trauma or are living with a toothache due to untreated infection or disease, you may need a tooth extraction to truly preserve your smile. At VSP Dental, we’ll always first recommend treating infection and saving a natural tooth with services like deep cleanings or a root canal. However, if unresponsive, removal may be the only way to restore your health.
A damaged or abscessed tooth can quickly lead to more serious issues affecting your other teeth, oral health, and even in some cases, your physical health if the cause is gum disease. Our dentist provides gentle tooth extractions in Danville, VA to quickly remedy your pain and save your smile from unnecessary harm. With sedation dentistry, a relaxing atmosphere, and affordable pricing, we’ll make your tooth extraction, and the path to restored health, surprisingly simple.
