The team at our dental office in Fort Collins is dedicated to protecting your natural teeth, but we do realize that a tooth extraction may be necessary at times. While we offer dental services to prevent the need for an extraction, there are some situations in which the most efficient way to restore your smile and oral health ​​​​​​​begin with an extraction. If you have any questions about the benefits of a tooth extraction contact us today. Our local dentist, Dr. Guy Leavitt, is anxious to give you the smile you have always wanted!​​​​​​​

Tooth extraction, to put it simply, is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure.
  • Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible.
  • Crowding caused by too many teeth trying to properly fit in the mouth.

Our local dentist uses great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your dental experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.
