Protect Your Oral Health
and Maintain a Beautiful

Sometimes, there’s no way to save a tooth and it just needs to come out. We most often see this in the form of wisdom tooth extractions which, if otherwise left undisturbed, can push your teeth forwards and cause serious misalignment and pain. The same applies to instances when extra teeth grow in or when baby teeth don’t fall out – crowding can be bad for your dental health if left unaddressed.

Fortunately, we at Costello Family Dentistry have an ideal solution: Quick, pain-free, and effective tooth extractions! Rest assured, when you choose us, you’re in very safe and capable hands thanks to our team of experienced Hygienists and Dentists. Reach out to us to schedule an appointment, and let’s restore that smile to its best possible condition.

When Are Extractions

In addition to wisdom teeth, tooth extractions may be required when decay or infection has damaged a large portion of the bone. Sometimes, outright destruction of bone segments can occur, which can lead to all sorts of dangerous infections. Also, consider the fact that an impacted tooth or set of crowded teeth can cause inflammation, intense pain, and other problems. An extraction mitigates much of the risk by quite literally alleviating your mouth of the burden.


Steps Towards

First off, our expert team will carefully inspect your teeth and gums to determine which areas are most at risk. We’ll also perform x-rays to confirm whether our suspicions are correct. If so, we’ll move forward and consult with you on an appropriate course of action – sometimes this may include a chance to preserve the tooth. Otherwise, an extraction will be necessary to protect against future infections, inflammation, crowding, and a less-healthier smile.

What About the Gap Left Behind?

We’re not surprised that many patients ask this same question, and we don’t blame them! However, don’t worry, as the Costello team has a range of solutions for the gaps left by the removed tooth that looks natural and will last for many years. Depending on how many teeth are extracted and the specific location in the mouth, we may opt for dental bridges, crowns, dental implants, or even dentures in rarer circumstances.


Our Focus is on Your

When you visit our Carleton Place dental office for your extraction appointment, know that we take your comfort and peace of mind very seriously. We’ll work closely with you to ensure you’re at ease and calm before, during, and after the procedure. Having a tooth removed can come as a visual shock to some, so our team is also trained in post-surgical guidance and will provide you with tips on taking care of the gapped area leading up to the installation of a permanent solution. We keep the patient comfortable and informed every step of the way.
