Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. At Potomac Dental Centre, we avoid tooth extraction when possible; you can feel confident that we will not recommend tooth extraction unless it is truly necessary. In certain cases, tooth extraction may be the best option for restoring your oral health. Our knowledgeable dentist, Dr. Everett Eklund, may recommend tooth extraction if:

  • Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
  • There is not enough room for all of the teeth to properly fit in the mouth
  • A tooth is severely damaged or decayed, making an effective restoration impossible

Our caring dental team will ensure that your tooth extraction in Hagerstown, Maryland, is as painless and comfortable as possible. We encourage you to closely follow the post-operative instructions provided by our dentist following the extraction to ensure that your smile heals quickly, comfortably, and effectively. We are happy to discuss tooth replacement options with you both before and after the tooth extraction. If you are experiencing any type of dental pain, we welcome you to contact our dental office today at 301-790-2007 to learn more about our dental treatments and to schedule your visit with our dentist. We are dedicated to improving your oral health.
