Tooth Extraction

Part of being a great dentist involves being there when you need us. We are available to handle most of your dental emergencies here at Garden Springs Dental, including tooth extractions.

We offer options for replacing missing teeth, but natural teeth are the best teeth. Our goal is to do everything we can to keep them healthy and intact, so they serve you for many years. 

But things don’t always go as planned, and sometimes removing a tooth right away is necessary to protect your overall oral health. If you need an emergency tooth extraction in Lexington, KY, call our dental team to provide the care you need to protect your smile. 

Emergency tooth extractions are most commonly related to severe decay, infection, or dental abscess that we cannot control with a root canal. An infected root canal often presents with a throbbing toothache, and if the disease is too advanced, we will need to pull the tooth. 

You can avoid the need for an emergency tooth extraction in Lexington, KY by being proactive with your oral health. Brush and floss daily and stay current with your six-month dental exams and cleanings, and you can avoid many dental emergencies, including tooth extractions.

If you’re in pain, please call us right away, and we’ll arrange to see you the same day if possible.
