To Help You Achieve The Goal Of Exceptional Dental
Health And Wellness.
You may need a tooth extraction for several reasons, and Walnut Creek Dentist Dr. Julia Lee will thoroughly explain all scenarios and tooth extraction options to you. Sometimes a tooth becomes severely decayed and cannot be saved with a root canal or dental crown. Extremely decayed teeth will become more painful and spread the infection to other areas, so your Walnut Creek dentist must extract them.
A tooth may have a severe crack that will inevitably lead to decay, so you are faced with the decision of extracting the tooth now or later when it becomes more painful and the infection more widespread. Wisdom Teeth are extracted especially if you are preparing for orthodontic treatment at The Center For Dental Implants and Dentistry. Walnut Creek Dentist Dr. Julia Lee understands the potential problems resulting from a tooth extraction. With the sudden void in your mouth, the underlying bone and gum tissue can recede, neighboring teeth can shift, and your entire bite can change and cause chewing and TMJ (jaw joint) pain. Luckily, Walnut Creek Dentist Dr. Julia Lee is educated in more than simply tooth extraction.
At the Center For Dental Implants and Dentistry, we will discuss the tooth extraction and any follow-up care options, to ensure you remain comfortable and smiling.
