Dr. James D. Schuette and our team are committed to helping you maintain and improve the health of your smile. We try to avoid the need of a tooth extraction, but some conditions may make tooth extraction the best option for restoring the health and function of your smile. After an extraction, we can suggest tooth replacement options to restore the health, beauty, and function of your smile.

There are several conditions that can make tooth extraction necessary. These include:

  • A severe infection that has destroyed a significant part of the tooth structure or supporting bone structure.
  • Severe decay that has caused the tooth to become damaged beyond repair. This being the case, a successful restoration would be impossible.
  • Crowding because there are too many teeth to fit properly in the mouth.
  • Our dentist and team will use a gentle hand and experienced skill when extracting a tooth. We want to ensure that your experience as is comfortable as possible. We will provide you with post-treatment instructions so that you can heal as quickly and comfortably as possible.
