Our goal here at Zama Dental is to help you preserve and protect your natural teeth through preventive care. However, in some cases a tooth may be so damaged that an extraction is needed. Our dentist will evaluate your tooth to determine if a tooth extraction is the right option for you.

There are several conditions which may lead Dr. Robert Zama to recommend removing a tooth from your mouth. These conditions include:

  • Severe infection which has destroyed significant portions of the tooth and supporting bone structure.
  • Significant decay which has damaged the tooth beyond repair.
  • Significant damage which cannot be repaired or restored with more conservative treatments.
  • Overcrowded caused by too many teeth to properly fit in your mouth.

When you receive a tooth extraction, our dentist will first provide a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during your procedure. The tooth will then be removed as gently as possible from your mouth. We will provide detailed post-op care instructions so that you can recover and heal without any complications.

After you have recovered from your extraction, we will work with you to find the right type of replacement for your missing tooth or teeth. Depending on how many teeth are missing and on your individual needs and preferences, this replacement could be a dental bridge, a dental implant, or a complete or partial denture. Our dentist will discuss all your options with you so you can find the tooth replacement options that are right for you.
