Tooth Extractions – Plattsburgh, NY

Removing Unhealthy Teeth to Create Healthier Smiles

Dr. Heins, Dr. Hanna, and Dr. Gerner never set out to remove a patient’s teeth. It goes against the goal of most dentists, which is to help individuals maintain their natural smiles for a lifetime. Unfortunately, situations can arise that put a patient’s oral health at risk. As a result, dentists have no other option but to extract one or more teeth. If you are recommended for this type of treatment, understand that it is only because there are no other viable options available. We’ll ensure your comfort and safety the entire time, so you can walk away with a healthier smile. Let us know if you would like to discuss the potential of tooth extractions in Plattsburgh by calling our dental office.

When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

It is not normal for our team to recommend tooth extractions; however, certain instances require this type of treatment, such as:

  • Overcrowded teeth require orthodontic treatment, but one or more teeth must first be removed to ensure successful results.
  • Severe decay is putting remaining healthy teeth at risk of infection.
  • Extreme facial trauma leaves one or more teeth badly damaged and no longer functioning.
  • A child’s baby tooth will not fall out on its own but must be extracted for the permanent one to erupt.
  • Dental prosthetics are being considered, and the remaining teeth are likely to fall out, resulting in the need for extraction.
