Tooth Extraction Available in Salem OR
Our dentists always put forth all of their effort to save a damaged tooth, but sometimes, tooth extraction is the best treatment for your smile. Don’t worry: If Dr. Snyder announces that you need a tooth pulled, you can trust our team to give you the most comfortable procedure possible.
Why Would I Need a Tooth Pulled?
Sometimes teeth extractions are necessary to protect the rest of the healthy smile. Some reasons for a tooth extraction include:
- Extensive tooth decay
- Significant physical trauma
- Advanced gum disease
- Cracked, broken, or worn down teeth
- Wisdom tooth extraction
If one tooth poses a threat to the rest of your natural teeth, it is best to have the tooth pulled.
You’re in Good Hands
Your comfort is our first priority during the tooth extraction process. Our Salem dentists and staff will treat you like family, and will pay close attention to your needs and concerns. You will be given a local anesthetic before your procedure to numb the area and prevent pain.
While there is no pain involved with teeth extractions, you may notice some pressure. If the idea of having a tooth pulled is daunting to you, we also provide great sedation dentistry methods including nitrous oxide and oral sedation.
