Tooth Extractions

Sometimes the removal of a tooth is inevitable!

You and Dr. William Gutierrez may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired during an accident or sport injury. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.



The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, Dr. William Gutierrez will discuss alternatives to extractions, such as a root canal, as well as replacement of the extracted tooth using dental implants or a bridge.
