At Quality Dental Care, our priority is to protect and help maintain the health of your teeth. Our goal is to recommend the most conservative options to protect your oral health and preserve healthy tooth structure. There are some situations, however, where extracting your tooth is the most appropriate solution.
Our team understands that the prospect of having a tooth extracted makes many patients feel anxious. But the skills and expertise offered by our Lakeland, FL oral surgeon Dr. Muhammed Zaman mean you don’t have to go to a different office to have your treatment completed. We can provide the high-quality advanced care you need right here in our office with a compassionate team you know and trust.
Why Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?
Some of the situations when we might recommend extraction to protect your overall oral health are:
- Your tooth is decayed or damaged beyond repair
- Periodontal disease and advanced bone loss jeopardize surrounding teeth
- Root canal therapy to save the tooth is not an option
- In preparation for placement of full or partial dentures
Gentle Care from Compassionate Professionals
Your comfort is always our top priority, and our professional team is trained to do everything possible to put you at ease. Dr. Smith and Dr. Zaman will show you x-rays of the problematic tooth and explain why it needs to be removed. They will discuss any available options and answer your questions until they’re sure you understand how removing it will benefit your long-term oral health.
A caring member of our team will be at your side every step of the way to provide support and encouragement before, during, and after extraction. Even the most confident patients can be overwhelmed by the thought of extraction, so we are pleased to offer a sedative to take the edge off your anxiety. If you do choose oral sedation, you will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment.
