In order to protect your overall health, removing badly damaged teeth due to cavities, infection, trauma or periodontal disease is sometimes necessary.
Our team understands that having a tooth removed can be stressful. We will walk you through every step of the procedure and make sure that it’s done in an efficient and atraumatic manner.
After a tooth is removed, a large hole then exists in the bone. While it will eventually fill in, the site tends to shrink, drawing the bone away from the area.
If you are considering a dental implant to replace the missing tooth, grafting materials can be placed at the time of tooth removal to help preserve the existing bone level. At Berkshire Dentist, we would be happy to discuss all treatment options available.
