Dentist in Fresno, CA

Our mission at My Fresno Family Dentist is to help you maintain a healthy smile for life, but sometimes Dr. Claudia J. Trujillo may recommend a tooth extraction for cosmetic or health reasons. If this is the case, our gentle dentist will work to make your tooth extraction as comfortable as possible and discuss your replacement options with you, such as dental implants. To learn more about tooth extraction in Fresno, California, we invite you to contact our office today at 559-432-2975.

It is not extremely common for our dentist to recommend a tooth extraction, as we generally believe that maintaining or repairing your original teeth is the best option for your overall oral health, but in some cases, removing a severely damaged or decayed tooth is the most effective way to restore your smile to full health. If our team recommends a tooth extraction, we will also be happy to discuss our many tooth replacement procedures before performing treatment, so you can leave our practice with a clear understanding of how we will help you achieve a fully functional, beautiful smile once again.

The circumstances under which we recommend a tooth extraction are few, but they include:

  • Severe Infection: When a significant portion of your tooth and surrounding bone has been destroyed by infection, we may recommend extraction.
  • Significant Decay: When successful restoration has been made impossible by serious dental decay, we may recommend extraction.
  • Overcrowding: When there are too many teeth to properly fit into your mouth, we may recommend extraction.

Whatever the reason, if you are undergoing a tooth extraction procedure, you can depend on our team to make the treatment as comfortable and pain free as possible. After your extraction is complete, our team will also provide detailed instructions for helping your smile heal properly and quickly.
