At Rockport Family Dental, we work hard to keep your smile in the best possible health. In certain circumstances, removing a tooth from your mouth may be our best option for restoring the health of your smile. We understand that tooth extraction can seriously affect the function and appearance of your smile, and you can feel confident that Dr. Kim and Dr. Gavelis will not suggest tooth extraction if it is not necessary. We may recommend a tooth extraction in Rockport, Massachusetts if:

  • A significant portion of the tooth and surrounding bone has been destroyed by infection
  • There are too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth, resulting in crowding
  • A tooth is so severely damaged or decayed that we cannot provide a successful restoration

You can rest assured that our caring dental team will do everything they can to make your tooth extraction as comfortable as possible. Our experienced dentists will extract your tooth with skill and care, and they will provide you with detailed instructions afterwards so you can make certain that your smile heals quickly. We offer several tooth replacement options at our office, including dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures, and we are glad to discuss these choices with you before and after your tooth extraction. We invite you to call or visit our dental office soon to learn more and to discover how we can improve your oral health.
