How do I know if I need a tooth extraction?

At Central Park Dental Clinic, we never recommend an extraction lightly. Typically, other than the routine removal of wisdom teeth, an extraction is often the last resort because it is usually simpler and less expensive to take care of the teeth you already have.

Dental Issues That May Require a Dental Extraction

Here are some of the common conditions that require a dental extraction:

  • Untreatable infection
  • Split or severely broken tooth
  • Periodontitis
  • Deep decay
  • Unresolved pain
  • Unsuccessful root canal treatment

When you arrive in our Burnaby, BC dental clinic, we often begin by taking an x-ray of the area to determine the status of the tooth. Dr. Chan will then discuss any conditions he identified and discuss all of your treatment options with you.

Comfortable Tooth Extractions in Burnaby 

If you do require a dental extraction, we want to reassure you that we always prioritise patient comfort and will ensure that your procedure is pain-free by using effective anaesthetic techniques and following up with your surgical care to make sure you heal properly.

When appropriate, we offer a number of tooth-replacement options for patients to choose from.
