Your natural teeth are the ones that will serve you and your smile best, and our dentist and team will do everything possible to help you keep your original smile for life. But in cases where a tooth is too compromised to be saved, Dr. Jamie Choi may suggest a visit to our office for a tooth extraction in San Jose, California. To see if this treatment would be right for you, call our office at 408-973-8500 for your appointment.

Tooth extraction will always be the last procedure our team recommends to restore your smile to full health, but in some cases of severe damage or decay, it can also be the best option for your future oral health. If you are experiencing any of the following, we may recommend a tooth extraction:

  • A severely damaged tooth that cannot be repaired or restored by our team.
  • An infected tooth that has lost most of its original structure or is beginning to infect the surrounding bone structure.
  • A severely overcrowded smile, in which your teeth cannot be properly aligned without a tooth being remove.

If you decide to have a tooth extracted to preserve your smile, our dentist and team will go above and beyond to make your procedure as easy and painless as possible. We will also make sure you leave our office with detailed instructions on how to make the healing period following treatment effective and comfortable. After your smile has fully recovered, we will discuss your tooth replacement options with you, taking into account your own aesthetic and oral health goals. This may be a dental implant, a dental bridge or a full denture.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment with our team, feel free to call or visit our office today.
