At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we care about the health and well-being of our patients. We know that patients who have experienced tooth loss are more likely to feel self-conscious and even may have feelings of depression. We want to work with these patients to help them choose a tooth replacement option as soon as possible. Our goal is to listen to and answer any questions about each treatment option and guide our patients to a choice that is most beneficial to their lifestyle and budget. We want to ensure that you are comfortable and understand whichever process you choose.
At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we do everything possible to save your natural teeth, but we are not always successful. There can be a number of reasons a patient might be missing a tooth or need to have a tooth extracted, such as severe decay, trauma to the mouth or complications from an illness or medication. No matter the reason, we know that it can be traumatic to deal with the emotions and decisions that need to be made about the empty space in your mouth. Many patients wonder whether their missing teeth need to be replaced at all. This is a common question, especially when a rear molar needs to be removed. We encourage each patient to replace their missing teeth no matter the location in the mouth.

Our main goal is to help you achieve the ultimate in dental health, and while that usually means that we try everything we can to save your teeth, there are times when it is just not possible. A tooth extraction could be needed for a number of reasons such as extreme dental decay, severe injury to the tooth, advanced periodontal disease, illness, or effects from medication. Children frequently need to have teeth extracted to make room for adult teeth to grow or before starting orthodontic treatment. A tooth extraction is when the entire tooth, including the root, is removed from the mouth.
