Our dentists and their teams know that visiting a dentist can sometimes be a stressful experience, especially if you anticipate you’ll need to have a tooth extracted. That’s why every member of our staff and team at the dental office in Richmond Hill is here to listen to your concerns and provide solutions to ensure that your visit is as gentle and stress-free as possible. Whether you visit our dentists for simple tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, or any of the other wide range of treatment options we provide, our commitment to gentle dentistry will never waiver.
One of our over-arching goals at Richmond Dental Care is to help our patients retain their natural teeth for a lifetime. Extracting a decayed tooth is never our first choice in oral care when other treatments can be used to prevent its loss. For example, even if a tooth is badly decayed and has had several fillings in the past, our dentists will first look to other options such as a dental crown before recommending a tooth extraction.
When you visit us for your consultation for tooth extraction, our dentists will discuss every treatment option that’s available so you can make the best choice for your immediate and long-term goals. For example, while the extraction procedure is relatively quick, patients will need to take other factors such as tooth replacement into consideration for long-term oral health. If a tooth has been extracted due to decay or damage and is not replaced with a dental bridge, a dental implant, or a partial denture, bone loss in the jaw will cause additional concerns in the coming years.
We are here to answer all of your questions about tooth extractions and alternatives to tooth extraction while also providing gentle dental care when an extraction is necessary. If you have a toothache, a loose tooth, or other dental concern that you’d like to remedy, we invite you to book an appointment with our dentists at Richmond Dental Care to learn more. We’re currently accepting new patients in our dental clinic in Richmond Hill, ON , and we’d love to answer all of your questions today.
