If you think you need a tooth extraction, contact our Washington, DC dental office for a consultation with Drs. John or Jeremi Arroyo. They will evaluate your condition and make recommendations for a full treatment plan, including tooth replacement in order to restore dental health.
Root Canal vs. Tooth Extraction
When you have tooth pain, it may seem like the best treatment is to have the tooth pulled. In most cases of, however, your dentist at Arroyo Center for Aesthetic Dentistry will support the decision to preserve the natural tooth with root canal therapy. This procedure can be performed in our Washington dentist office.
There are situations, however, where a tooth extraction is the best choice. In these cases, Drs. John and Jeremi Arroyo will design a treatment plan to remove the tooth and replace it either with a dental implant, dental bridge or denture. The treatment recommended will depend on your oral health, personal cosmetic goals and budget.
It is important to replace missing teeth quickly to prevent supporting bone from deteriorating and remaining teeth from shifting. Once this occurs, treatment options can become limited and additional dental treatments may be necessary to restore dental health.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Depending on your condition, Dr. John or Dr. Jeremi Arroyo may perform your wisdom tooth extraction in their Washington dentist office. If necessary, you may be referred to a local oral surgeon for treatment.
