Teeth Extractions

While our goal is always to save your natural teeth, extractions can be necessary for a number of reasons. Severe dental decay attacking the nerves of a tooth, a large break or a crack below the gum line, or upcoming orthodontic treatment are some of the reasons a tooth may need to be extracted. While this is not the ideal dental treatment, sometimes it is the only one.

At Axiom Dentistry, we understand the apprehension patients may feel when they are facing tooth extraction. We provide a soothing atmosphere to help you relax and feel calm. We also put your fears to rest as we walk you through the procedure, so you know what to expect. Tooth extraction does not have to be an ordeal, and we do our best to make it a painless procedure.

Damaged Tooth Removal

Sometimes a tooth may be damaged due to trauma or decay and need removal. A tooth that is badly decayed may not have enough tooth structure left to make root canal therapy a viable option. Removing the tooth may be necessary to keep an infection from causing more problems. Such teeth are also prone to break at the gum line, leaving the tooth with no crown.

In many cases, a tooth that has been cracked can be saved. However, if the crack extends below the gum line, chances are the tooth will need to be removed. Cracks above the gum line are often repairable, but this is not the case with those that occur below it. Bacteria can get in these cracks and cause decay which will eventually lead to more serious problems.

Axiom Dentistry Review

Trisha L.

I absolutely love this dental practice. The staff are all really friendly, helpful, and accommodating. It's easy to get in for an appointment as they have multiple providers. You can choose to see one particular dentist or choose to see whoever is available. I see whoever is available and everyone has been wonderful.

Dr. Malek is amazingly patient with children. My daughter has special needs and we've always received treatment from a pediatric dentist. Well, no more! Dr. Malek was so compassionate and caring and made my daughter feel so comfortable. What a pleasant experience!

Best dentist ever. Best staff ever. I will never go to anyone else ever again. Dr. Malek and his crew go above and beyond for you and have consistently worked with me over the last 7 years to help me get the care I needed. I could not be more grateful and I know I will be a patient for life!
