Sometimes it becomes necessary to have one or more of your natural teeth removed. This could be due to several factors, such as:
- Disease or illness
- Poor dental hygiene
- Genetic predisposition to poor oral health
While removing teeth is never our first choice in your dental care, sometimes there is no other option. With Corsi Dental Associates as your dental care provider, though, you can be assured that if extraction is the only option, we’ll do it in the gentlest, more compassionate way possible.
We practice sedation dentistry which means you’ll be given the necessary anesthesia and pain medication to help relieve the pain and anxiety that many people experience during a tooth extraction. Our team will work together to ensure you are comfortable before, during, and after the extraction. Be sure to let our team know if there is anything they can do to make you removing your tooth more comfortable for you.

Once the tooth has been removed, Dr. Corsi will work with you to determine the best route for post-extraction care. Leaving a gap where your tooth once was can cause issues for you in the future, including bone loss in your jaw and the remaining teeth to painfully shift out of place. We can recommend a dental bridge, implant, partial or full dentures based on your needs and the health of your mouth. You can discuss the options that are right for you during your appointment.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, make an appointment with our office immediately by calling us or contacting us for an appointment through our website.
