At the dental office of Brandon R. Magill, DMD, PLLC, we strive to provide you with conservative dentistry. In some cases, however, oral surgery may be the best option for improving your oral health and function. One of the most common types of oral surgery is tooth extraction. A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth for health purposes. We understand that losing a tooth can impact the function and appearance of your smile, and we avoid extraction when possible. Tooth extraction may be necessary if:
- There is not enough room for all of the teeth to properly fit in the mouth
- Severe infection has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and bone
- A tooth is so badly decayed that an effective restoration is impossible
Tooth extraction can prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. Dr. Brandon R. Magill, our gentle dentist, will ensure that your tooth extraction in Manlius, New York is as painless and comfortable as possible. We are happy to recommend tooth replacement options both before and after the tooth extraction procedure. To learn more about tooth extraction and oral surgery, we invite you to call or visit our dental office today. We are committed to improving your oral health!
