Tooth Extraction Dental Clinic & Dentists in Ottawa
Although our philosophy and treatment goal is always the preservation and restoration of the natural teeth, it may sometimes be necessary to extract a tooth or teeth that are simply "beyond repair". Significantly damaged teeth that are not attended to in a timely fashion can ultimately cause serious problems for the surrounding teeth, gums and the underlying jawbone. Whenever extraction is a part of the treatment plan, we always offer and explain to our patients their options for tooth replacement. The sooner the extracted tooth (teeth) is replaced, the less deterioration there is in the overall functionality. To us, that means that full chewing and biting ability is restored, there is no displacement (movement) of adjacent teeth, the aesthetic appeal is preserved, etc.
