At Smiles Dental, our entire team is committed to helping you keep your smile healthy and strong for life. Certain situations, however, may make tooth extraction (removal) the best available option for improving your oral health. In these cases, you can rest assured that our dentists and team will make the experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We are happy to offer several options for anxious patients, and we are also glad to recommend tooth replacement options if needed.

Dr. Wilkinson, Dr. Mistry, and Dr. Jardine may suggest tooth extraction if:

  • A tooth is so seriously decayed that an effective restoration with a dental filling or crown is impossible
  • Serious infection has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone
  • There are too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth, resulting in crowding
  • A baby tooth (primary tooth) is not falling out as normal and is blocking the way for an erupting permanent tooth

Following your tooth extraction in Camas, Washington, we encourage you to carefully follow the instructions provided by our dentists. This will help to ensure that your smile heals quickly and comfortably. We invite you to contact us today if you would like more information or if you would like to set up your next appointment. We look forward to caring for your smile!
