Tooth Extractions Concord, CA

Remove severely decayed or infected teeth

ExtractionsYou might think extracting a tooth goes against the goal of a restorative procedure, and it’s true that it is somewhat counterintuitive to remove a tooth in order to restore function. Dr. Robert L. Stirm is committed to doing everything possible to save a natural tooth, but in some cases it is in the best interest of the patient to completely remove it. Examples of such instances are tooth decay that has progressed too far to reverse or in preparation for dentures, dental implants, or orthodontic treatment.

Dr. Stirm is very gentle and skilled at tooth extraction, and at his Concord, CA office, it is a relatively simple and quick procedure. While the patient is mildly sedated, Dr. Stirm uses dental forceps to rock the tooth in order to break the connective ligaments so that the tooth is released.
