At Custom Dental Care & Med-Spa, we try everything we can to keep your smile healthy and uniform. However, there may be a time when Dr. Ward Whitaker needs to perform a tooth extraction to rescue your mouth from an infection or a severely decayed tooth. If this is the case for you, please give us a call at 813-876-6930 to schedule an appointment with our dentist and learn more about tooth extractions.
While our dentist and team do everything possible to prevent the need to remove a tooth from your mouth, there are some circumstances that may make a tooth extraction the best option for your oral health. You may need a tooth extraction if:
- Your tooth is severely decayed and damaged beyond the point where it can be repaired.
- Your tooth has a severe infection, and large portions of the tooth and its supporting bone structure have been destroyed.
- Your teeth are crowded and cannot fit properly in your mouth unless one is removed.
If you have any questions about tooth extractions or if you want to set up an appointment with our dentist, please contact our office.
