There are several reasons our dentists in Clarkston, WA perform extractions. Sometimes, a tooth may have been severely damaged or have such extensive decay it cannot be salvaged.
Other times, we may need to perform an extraction in preparation for the placement of dentures. Whatever the need for your tooth extraction, Dr. Meyers and Dr. Folsom can perform your treatment safely and comfortably.
We perform all types of extractions in our office. Some common reasons a tooth may need to be extracted include:
- Severe decay or infection
- Severe periodontal disease resulting in bone loss and soft tissue support
- Inadequate space for erupting teeth
- Extra teeth
- Preparation for orthodontic treatment
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Severe fracture
Most of our extractions are completed in the comfort of our own office. In fact, we do a lot of full mouth extractions for the placement of dentures at Meyers-Folsom Dental Clinic. However, there are times when our dentists may refer you to a specialist. In these cases, we work with a wonderful oral surgeon in the area who holds the same values we have for our patients. Whether Dr. Meyers, Dr. Folsom, or our oral surgeon will be performing your extraction, you can trust we have your best interest at heart.
For any and all services provided at Meyers-Folsom Dental Clinic, we promise to deliver the level of comfort and care you expect and deserve. For more information about our services, including dentures and extractions, our Lewiston, Idaho area dental team is ready to help. Call us today!
