Gum disease can loosen or severely damage a tooth. A tooth that is severely damaged may need to be removed. Your dentist or a surgeon who specializes in surgeries of the mouth (oral and maxillofacial surgeon) can remove a tooth.
At Venu Dental Clinic we only believe in extraction as a very last resort. Dr Venu Gopal will always aim to take a conservative approach, trying to save the tooth in all possible cases. In many cases, other treatments such as a root canal can be an option which allows the affected tooth to be saved. However, when a tooth cannot be saved, removal of the tooth may be the only course of treatment.
The team at Venu Dental understand that losing a tooth can be quite traumatic for patients. Not only does it affect the overall aesthetic appearance of a smile but it will also begin to affect the function as well. After an extraction, Dr Venu Gopal will go through with each patient the viable options for replacing the tooth. Advanced Dental Care Clinic offer patients the option of dental implants, crowns, bridges and dentures to help treat tooth loss. We will ensure you feel relaxed and at ease throughout any treatment.
