Dr. Morley and Dr. Hamel may recommend a tooth extraction if you have a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged beyond the point where it can be restored. Teeth in this condition threaten the health of your other teeth and can cause serious problems if not removed from your mouth. We may also recommend a tooth extraction if you are experiencing crowding due to having too many teeth to fit properly in your mouth.

At Modern Dental, our goal is to preserve and protect your teeth as much as possible. However, if it does become necessary to remove your tooth, we will perform the extraction as gently as possible. We understand that losing a tooth can be an upsetting experience. We will help you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. After your tooth has been extracted, our dentists will work with you to find an appropriate replacement to restore your smile.

After your tooth has been removed, we will give you detailed, post-op instructions in order to ensure that you heal properly and recover quickly.

If you have questions about tooth extractions, or if you would like to schedule your personalized consultation at our friendly dental office in Springfield, Illinois, please call us today at (217) 698-3400.
