There are times that a damaged tooth cannot be repaired by dental treatments and must be removed. This is called a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction in Pomona, California most often occurs because we need to take your entire smile into account. Decayed or infected teeth often breed and spread bacteria, which causes healthy teeth to become infected and start to decay. In order to protect the remaining teeth in your smile, we remove the tooth. Other common reasons for a tooth extraction are an overcrowded mouth or periodontal disease. For any tooth extraction, our skilled dental team will give you the personal attention and care you deserve. We understand the effect losing a tooth can have on your confidence. That is why we also provide restorative and cosmetic dentistry options to restore your smile and maintain all of your mouth’s proper functions.

At Joshi & Joshi Family Dental, we also offer the specialized extraction of your third molars, or wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last of your teeth to grow in, and there is often not enough room for them to grow properly from the gumline, leading wisdom teeth to become impacted. Impaction means wisdom teeth become stuck in the jawbone and gums, causing infection, decay, and pain. Wisdom teeth removal helps keep your smile happy and healthy.
