What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid tooth extraction whenever possible, there are certain conditions that may make tooth extraction the best option for restoring the health and function of your smile. If needed, we are happy to review your options for replacing the tooth and restoring your smile.

Do I need tooth extraction?

Dr. Huber, Dr. Pelkey and Dr. Shumway may recommend tooth extraction in Grove City, Ohio if:

  • Infection has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone
  • A tooth is so badly decayed that an effective restoration is impossible
  • There are too many teeth to fit in the mouth

We will carefully examine your smile to determine whether tooth extraction is the best course of treatment for you.

Does tooth extraction hurt?

We use local anesthesia to numb the area, and we will provide you with detailed care instructions so you can properly care for your smile during the healing process.
