If a tooth is severely damaged, the best option may be tooth extraction. Tooth extraction can prevent further damage and infection and will get you on your way to achieving excellent dental health and restoring your beautiful, functional smile. We may recommend a tooth extraction in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, for a tooth that is so seriously damaged, decayed, or infected that we cannot effectively restore the tooth through another treatment. Our experienced dentist and his staff are committed to giving you the best possible experience here at our dental office. Dr. Jensen’s skilled, gentle manner, combined with anesthesia, ensures that your procedure will be comfortable and safe.
After your tooth extraction, your mouth will heal in just a few days. We encourage you to follow Dr. Jensen’s instructions to protect against infection and guarantee a healthy mouth. The removed tooth can be replaced with one of the following:
- A bridge
- A denture
- An implant
