The loss of a tooth isn’t something anyone expects or even wants to think about. After all, you take good care of your oral health, and the plan was for your teeth to last forever.
At the office of Zachary J. Holder, DDS, our goal is to save teeth whenever possible. However, decay or dental trauma can happen to anyone, and when it severely compromises your tooth beyond repair, extraction is often the best solution for relieving pain and eliminating infection.
Our professional team is very sensitive to the fact that you’re probably apprehensive about your procedure – almost everyone is! We’ll work together to support and encourage you throughout the procedure. You’ll find that our compassionate approach and genuine concern for your well-being will put you at ease and help you overcome your anxiety.
Severe decay and infection are two of the most common reason for extraction, but there are several other situations where tooth extraction may be necessary:
Many people get anxious at the thought of any type of dental treatment, so it’s no surprise that the thought of tooth extraction can be completely overwhelming. But you can be confident that you are in excellent hands with Dr. Holder, Dr. Kirkpatrick, who both have extensive experienced and hospital-based training in surgical tooth extractions and oral surgery procedures.
Are you embarrassed about your dental anxiety? Please don’t be – we’ve all been there at one point in our lives, so we know that your concerns are completely natural and nothing to be ashamed of. Dental technology and procedures have improved significantly in recent years, and tooth extraction may actually be a lot easier than you think.
