Whenever it is possible, our dentist, Dr. Gretchen Drees, and the team at Ashland Dental Arts want you to keep your natural teeth. They are the best ones for your smile, after all! However, there may be a situation in which a tooth has become too damaged or diseased to be viable, or it may cause a hazard for your other teeth. In other cases, your teeth may be crowding one another. In these situations, an extraction may be necessary. Our team will do their best to keep you comfortable throughout the process, explain your aftercare needs and help you explore your tooth replacement options. If you would like to find out if you need a tooth extraction in Ashland, Virginia, call Ashland Dental Arts at 804-798-7388 today to plan your visit.
