At Sharon D. Sims DDS General Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping you keep your smile in the best possible health. In certain cases, the best option for improving your oral health may be tooth extraction (removal). Our experienced dentist, Dr. Sims, may recommend tooth extraction if:
A tooth has become seriously decayed or damaged and an effective restoration is not possible
There is not enough room in the mouth for all of the teeth
Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone
Following tooth extraction, we will be happy to advise you on our tooth replacement options. Tooth extraction can allow your mouth to begin to heal and can prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. To begin your journey to optimal oral health, we welcome you to call or visit our dental office in Shreveport, Louisiana!
