The health and vitality of your entire smile is our first priority, and we will always do everything in our power to restore and repair damaged teeth. However, some circumstances may require us to remove a tooth from your jaw. This is called a tooth extraction and will only be suggested by Dr. Shuichi Yamaguchi, our kind dentist, if we feel it is absolutely necessary to the health of your smile.

A tooth extraction in Everett, Washington, may be necessary if:

  • Your teeth have been killed by decay or infection
  • You are in the advanced stages of periodontal disease
  • Your smile is overcrowded or crooked
  • Your teeth have grown in improperly, such as impacted wisdom teeth

By extracting a decayed, dead, or impacted tooth, you prevent infection from spreading to healthier areas of your mouth while also reducing the risk for other health problems. At 19th Avenue Dental, we use the greatest care when extracting a tooth and provide you with multiple tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dentures, and bridges. We also offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide sedation to help you have a calm, healthy dental experience. If you are worried about the state of your smile, please come and visit our office. We will take a closer look at your teeth and gums and help you understand what we can do together to ensure you get the dental care you need.
