Though it is usually best to retain your natural teeth, in certain situations, the best option for restoring oral health is a tooth extraction. Dr. Nicole Holmes and Dr. Dan Holmes may recommend a tooth extraction if no other dental treatments and procedures can heal a tooth that is:
- Significantly decayed or damaged
- Severely affected by periodontal disease (gum disease)
- Impacted (trapped under the gum line)
- Largely destroyed by infection
Our dentists and dental team at Holmes Dental are dedicated to ensuring that each procedure, including tooth extraction, is performed gently and comfortably so you can have a great dental experience at our office. A tooth extraction, followed by proper cleaning and hygiene, can help you improve your oral health and restore the function and beauty of your smile.
After undergoing a tooth extraction in Fort Collins, Colorado, you may want to consider receiving one of our restorative services, such as a dental implant or bridge. These restorations can not only renew the appearance of your smile, but its function and health as well. If you are experiencing tooth pain, we invite you to call our dental office to learn more about our restorative dentistry options. You can begin improving your oral health today!
