If you think you need a tooth extraction, contact our Asheville dental office for a consultation with Dr. Shawna Hoffert. She will evaluate your condition and recommend a full treatment plan. Tooth extractions may be used to restore oral health. Dr. Hoffert also offers full service dental implant procedures for the long term replacement of missing teeth.
There are times when a tooth extraction is the best choice. In many cases, however, it is best to preserve the natural teeth. Dr. Hoffert offers tooth fillings and root canals as conservative treatment options to restore decayed or damaged teeth.
Once a tooth is lost, the bone begins to deteriorate and the gum is exposed to more bacteria, increasing the risk of developing gum disease. The teeth that remain can also shift, causing potential problems with the fit of the bite and TMJ function. So, if you do have a tooth pulled, it is important that you also consider the replacement options for the missing tooth.
Dr. Hoffert offers a full range of replacement options for missing teeth including dental implants, bridges and dentures.
