At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we offer multiple ways to protect and restore your natural teeth. However, there are times in which the health or structure of a tooth is beyond repair. For the sake of your oral health, a tooth may require removal. You can trust that we perform tooth extractions with the highest standard of care at our Richmond office. Not only do we offer sedation dentistry to help you relax, we also have a dentist that uses gentle, conservative techniques in oral surgery to preserve as much healthy surrounding bone and tissue as possible. We offer painless tooth extractions for both children and adults in a friendly, patient-centered environment.
When it comes to caring for your smile, our job is to recommend treatments that address your current concerns while also considering your long-term oral health. Tooth extractions can often restore your dental health by eliminating the presence of severe decay or infection. It can also be performed for teeth, such as the wisdom teeth, that have become impacted or erupted improperly. Such situations can threaten your jaw health and lead to painful swelling or infection within the gums.
It is also possible to need tooth removal as a pre-treatment for orthodontics, especially when the teeth are crowded. In addition, young children may need an extraction if they have a primary tooth that is unwilling to fall out on its own. Regardless of the reason for your tooth removal, you can trust Short Pump Family Dentistry for a streamlined and comfortable visit.
Dr. Tse will carefully explain any postoperative instructions before you leave to accelerate your healing and recovery at home. We will also discuss your candidacy for tooth replacement if necessary, which may include a dental implant, bridge or denture.
