A broken tooth or rotten tooth can cause severe, distracting pain that makes everyday activities like eating, drinking, and even sleeping difficult. Sometimes teeth in this condition can be treated and repaired, allowing you to resume a normal life without pain. However, treatment and/or repairs aren’t possible in every case. Though we always attempt to preserve your natural teeth, sometimes tooth extractions are the only way to alleviate your pain and protect your overall dental health. When this happens, count on the team here at Newburyport Family Dental to both explain why you must have a tooth pulled and also make you comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. Afterward, we’ll make sure you have any medications or follow-up treatment you may need. Relax—relief is here! Reach out to us now.

Restoring Your Smile After Tooth Extractions
The tooth pain is gone and you’re feeling comfortable once again. Or as comfortable as you can with missing teeth. While a relief, losing a bad tooth also leaves a gap in your smile that has implications beyond the esthetic. Missing teeth mean difficulty eating and speaking. Over time, they can also lead to jawbone deterioration, requiring bone grafting to restore the bone mass. There is one solution that can solve all of the esthetic and functional issues connected with missing teeth as well as protect your greater dental health. Dental implants look, feel, and perform just like real teeth, and are made to last a lifetime. Our team has exceptional experience in placing and restoring dental implants and can deliver the outstanding smile you desire. If you need a tooth pulled and have been wondering what’s next, schedule a consultation in our Newburyport, MA office today.
