Fast and Easy Emergency Tooth Extraction
“I did have an emergency. I just came over here on a Friday and said, “Look this is not going away and I don’t want to live with it over the weekend.” It turned out to be a cracked tooth that we’d had some concern about for a long time and he extracted it. I trust Dr. Glick entirely. I trust him with my family, all five kids, my grandson, my wife and myself.”

We Won’t Resort to Tooth Extraction Prematurely
At Craig Glick DDS, we are dedicated to helping patients keep their natural teeth for as long as possible. This means that we regard tooth extraction as a last resort that can be used to eliminate pain when a tooth is too badly damaged or decayed to be saved.

You can rely on Dr. Glick to provide his expert opinion regarding your best course of action when dealing with a problem tooth. No matter which treatment you ultimately decided to undergo, Dr. Glick will approach the job with the same professionalism and care.
Replacing Teeth After Extraction
Getting a tooth extracted is just the first part of a two-step process. Once the painful tooth has been removed, you still need to find a way to replace it so that you can speak and eat comfortably. If you opt not to replace the tooth, neighboring teeth can shift into the gap, resulting in crooked, misaligned teeth that won’t look very nice or provide you with a good bite. If you’ve had a single tooth extracted, you could replace it with a bridge or a. If you’ve had multiple teeth extracted, you may need a full or partial denture, or even implant-supported dentures. Dr. Glick will be happy to explain all your options to you in detail after your tooth extraction surgery. Please contact us online to get the process started.
