Missing teeth can have several health and appearance implications. Obviously, a missing tooth will cause your smile to look significantly different. It can even make you hesitant to smile or speak in public situations. Also, when a tooth is missing, the underlying bone structure begins to dissolve away. Our first goal is always to avoid an extraction if possible.


Despite the best efforts of you and your dentist, in some cases extracting a tooth may be necessary. This necessity may be brought about by advanced gum disease, serious infection , severe tooth decay, a fractured tooth, or a tooth that has been impacted into the gums.


Even when an extraction is necessary, a skilled dentist is usually able to complete the extraction with minimal discomfort and pain. The use of anesthesia, modern training techniques, and advanced equipment has made tooth extractions far less dramatic than they once were. In advanced complex cases, your dentist may refer you to a specialist. Once the extraction is completed, it will be important for you to follow the post-extraction recovery instructions.

      what our patients are saying

      Dr Mantel is a very caring and honest dentist. He took his time in explaining the process of Invisalign to me last year and never pressured me into getting it today I finally went to him to put them on I can’t even tell they are on, best of all neither can anyone else. Thank you Dr David Mantel and staff at Dental Team.


      Just started going here and have never seen a staff as warm and friendly and the dentists and technicians as well! Hate to say it but I am ALMOST looking forward to going to the dentist again ...
