There are cases where a tooth is too extensively damaged or infected to repair. If this is the case, our dentists will likely recommend a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction includes the removal of a tooth from your jaw/mouth. Reasons why you may need a tooth extracted include:
• Severe infection or decay
• Damage to the tooth’s supporting oral structures
• Overcrowding

Tooth extractions in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, are recommended if it is the only viable treatment option. We make every possible effort to save your tooth using preventive, conservative and restorative services before removing it. If a tooth extraction is deemed absolutely necessary, we will provide you with sedation dentistry to ensure you feel comfortable while your tooth is removed. After extraction, our team will provide you with post-operative instructions on how to heal and care for your smile properly.

We also help you find the most appropriate and affordable tooth replacement for your missing tooth. Depending on your needs and the placement of the missing tooth, we can replace your tooth with a bridge, implant or partial denture.

If you have any questions or want to learn whether you need a tooth extraction, please reach out to our office at 225-478-8484. We look forward to caring for you.
