What does that mean?

Dental extractions may seem like a scary procedure, but the team at Denti Belli Dentistry will do everything it takes to make your treatment as comfortable and convenient as possible. Although Dr. Taylor is not an oral surgeon, she specializes in the art of tooth extractions. She has undergone numerous hours of continuing education in the field of oral surgery to allow her to do many more complex cases without having to be referred to the specialist.

Why is a tooth extraction needed?

If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, sometimes, a filling or crown may be able to fix it. Sometimes, however, if the tooth has been too badly damaged from trauma or decay, an extraction would be the only alternative treatment.

Other reasons that Dr. Taylor, your dentist in Renton, WA may recommend an extraction are:

  • Teeth severely damaged by periodontal disease. Due to the lack of bone support, these teeth are usually mobile.
  • Severely crowded teeth. With the aid of extractions, orthodontia can help to align the remaining teeth.
  • Teeth damaged by trauma (multiple fractures or vertical root fractures).
  • Infected teeth where root canal therapy would be of no resolution.
  • Eruption of a tooth is causing damage to the adjacent teeth or gum tissue. This is usually seen with the impaction of wisdom teeth.

Making Your Extraction as Painless as Possible

Nobody wants to go through surgery. Let Denti Belli Dentistry take those fears away.

"Extremely Kind and Reassuring"

I haven't visited the dentist in a very long time until today. I was warmly welcomed by every staff member and given an in-depth explanation of the care that I needed and the price breakdown. Dr. Taylor and the hygienists were extremely kind and reassuring and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way.
