Is it about time for your dental extraction and you’re having second thoughts (or perhaps third and fourth thoughts)? We know that this can feel a little confusing. What you want, of course, is to just take us at our word that removing the tooth is best and that things will be fine. That doesn’t mean you don’t want some further information regarding why and how we have arrived at this decision for you! As a result, we’d like you to become as comfortable, confident, and informed regarding your choices that you make for your teeth. So, without further ado, let’s cover a couple things to remember that will be of help.
#1: You Didn’t Leave A Stone Unturned
You may think as your dental extraction approaches that perhaps you should have looked harder for an alternative. You might think you overlooked some detail, ignored a home remedy, etc. The truth is, when we diagnose you with the need for the removal of your tooth, it is a true need. Do not “beat yourself up” thinking that you can save your tooth. It must go! Fortunately, it will also make your smile much healthier.
#2: There Are So Many Ways To Move On
If you’re having a dental extraction for a tooth that you don’t need in your smile (like a wisdom tooth), then you will heal and move on with your life. No biggie. If you’re having a necessary tooth taken out, then we can help you in many ways to restore your smile by replacing the tooth that we remove. For instance, did you know that we offer single implants, as well as bridges? We’ll get your smile right back to it’s lovely, completely useful state in no time.
