San Mateo Extractions

Extractions in San Mateo

At Contemporary Dental we are committed to delivering the highest quality of care at every visit. Whether you visit our office for a routine checkup, dental cleaning, fillings, a cosmetic smile makeover, or San Mateo extractions, you can expect precise, gentle, and skilled care. We’ll keep you informed and at ease throughout every visit, and utilize the most advanced technology and methods of care for a comfortable dental experience.

Although we’ll typically do everything possible to retain your natural teeth in the dental arch, there are times when an extraction is the best course of care for maintaining your oral and overall health. When a tooth has been severely compromised by injury, decay or for any other reason, and cannot be restored, we may recommend San Mateo extractions. Wisdom teeth that are impacted or poorly positioned may also need to be extracted in order to prevent damage to the surrounding teeth and tissues or the possibility of infections. For children and teens, we may recommend extracting a baby tooth when it is reluctant to fall out on its own, to allow room for the underlying permanent tooth to erupt into place. Whatever the case may be, our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed, to determine an effective treatment plan. We deliver the most precise and gentle care, and are happy to answer any questions you may have. If your extracted tooth needs to be replaced, we’ll discuss your best options in care. Our office offers functional and cosmetically pleasing dentures and fixed bridges, as well as dental implants. Dental implants represent the most advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth, rebuilding a complete smile and functional occlusion with results that look and feel natural.

For gentle, personalized solutions for all your dental healthcare needs, visit us at Contemporary Dental. We prioritize your comfort and strive to make your San Mateo extractions a stress-free experience. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
