Extractions (oral surgery)


Extractions

 

When you need extractions in Novato, there’s no time to wait. Damaged teeth can be extremely painful and uncomfortable, making it difficult to function. This can affect your ability to work, eat, and enjoy everyday activities. At Novato dental office we can perform extractions on all but the most extreme cases, and can provide continual care including tooth replacement.

Our goal is to help you maintain healthy teeth for life. However, sometimes tooth extractions are necessary. Many simple extractions are performed in our office but more complex treatment will be referred to an oral surgeon. Please share any concerns you have with Dr. Chui.

Tooth Replacement

When a tooth is removed, neighboring teeth often shift, which can cause problems with chewing or overall joint function. Dr. Chui may recommend replacing the tooth to avoid these complications. They will discuss your options for replacement as needed.
