Whenever possible, our dentist, Dr Holden Correll, will do everything possible to help you keep your natural teeth, since they are the best ones for your smile. But from time to time, a situation may arise in which a tooth extraction in Topeka, Kansas, becomes a necessity. For example, a tooth may be so damaged, infected or decayed that it is no longer viable or is a hazard to your oral health. You may also have too many teeth in an area of your mouth, a condition known as crowding.
If you do need an extraction, Dr. Correll and our team will do everything possible to keep you comfortable during your visit. We will also give you the necessary aftercare instructions to avoid problems such as dry socket and will schedule you for a follow-up appointment to check how the extraction site is healing and discuss potential tooth replacement options with you.
If you have a tooth that has been causing you some problems and would like to see if a tooth extraction could benefit you or if you would like to discuss other treatment possibilities, call our office today at 785-271-7477 and a member of our team will be happy to help you schedule your visit.
