TOOTH EXTRACTION

A tooth extraction is the removal of a broken or diseased tooth from the mouth. There are many reasons why this might be necessary. Depending on your circumstance, our experienced dentists may offer several options to let you make an informed decision about your care.

 

Most extractions can be done in our Colorado Springs office.  However, patients who need or prefer to be “put out” or sedated, have serious medical problems or exceptionall­­y difficult extraction will need services we do not provide.  We will then refer you to an Oral Surgeon to take care of these needs.

 

After any extraction, it is important to follow the post-procedure instructions provided by the office to avoid complications and ensure good healing.
