At Cardwell Family Dentistry, we are committed to helping you keep your smile healthy for life. While we strive to keep your teeth in good health, certain conditions and situations may require that we remove a tooth. Tooth extraction may be needed in the following cases:

  • A tooth is so severely decayed or otherwise damaged that we cannot successfully repair the tooth with a filling, crown, or other restoration
  • Serious infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • There are too many teeth to comfortably fit in the mouth, causing severe crowding

Tooth extraction can help to prevent the infection and decay from spreading to other healthy areas of your smile. No matter the reason for your tooth extraction, you can rest assured that Dr. Laurin Cardwell and our team will make your treatment as comfortable and stress free as possible. We are also happy to consult with you regarding tooth replacement options both before and after your tooth is removed. Following your tooth extraction in Sylva, North Carolina, be certain to follow the instructions provided by our dentist to ensure that your smile heals quickly and properly. To learn more about tooth extraction and the other dental treatments we offer, we welcome you to contact our office today. We are dedicated to improving your oral health!
