Extraction and Preservation

Although we strive to save your natural teeth, there are occasions when an extraction is the wisest course of action. When this is the case, we will clearly explain why and then outline how we can comfortably remove your tooth.

At Cosmetic and Family Dentistry of Mill Creek we ensure you won’t feel anything by numbing the area and using modern techniques to extract the tooth. You will receive specific post-op instructions to help you care for the area after your procedure.

We will then provide you with some options for restoring your smile. Leaving a space is always an option, but spaces in your smile can be unaesthetic and create functional challenges that are important to consider. Teeth slowly shift or migrate into open spaces and tend to cause an imbalance in your bite. Dr. Shah helps guide and take the best course of action specific to your needs.
