San Diego Dentistry Studio is able to perform teeth extractions in our office. Using our Cone Beam CT Scanner, we are able to take a look at your dentition and decide on the best course of action. Because we have an in-house oral surgeon, we do not need to refer you out to another dentist. Instead, our studio will make every effort to make you comfortable going into your appointment. We will also work with you to preserve the bone tissue at the extraction site following the removal of your tooth. Contact us today at 858-257-3412 to make your appointment with Dr. Tim Garofolo and learn more about tooth extractions and bone preservation in San Diego and Rancho Bernardo, California.

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
  • Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth

Our dentist uses great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your dental experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals. For more information on tooth extraction and to schedule your personalized consultation at our friendly dental office, we invite you to call or visit us today. We are committed to improving your smile!
