If you have a strong and persisting toothache, it could be the result of infected and dying dental tissue deep within your teeth. If your tooth is severely damaged and decayed, Dr. Garth Collins may determine that it needs to be extracted. Our goal is to preserve as many of your natural teeth as possible, and we will refer you for a root canal whenever possible. However, it is sometimes necessary to extract a tooth that is damaged beyond what is possible to save.

If you are in need of a tooth extraction, our caring dental team will make sure that you are as comfortable as possible and will take great care to make the operation as painless as can be. Removing a dead tooth often immediately relieves much of the pain that is associated with a diseased tooth and can greatly improve your quality of life.

Once a tooth is extracted, the dentist will carefully explain different options that are best for replacing your lost tooth. Depending on your individual needs, these options may include dental implants, bridges, or dentures. Having one of these tooth restorations can improve the aesthetics of your smile and help maintain natural facial structure.
