Much like the name suggests, tooth extractions are the removal of teeth. Our skilled dentist will only suggest removal if your teeth cannot be repaired with traditional dental restorations, such as dental fillings, dental inlays or onlays, or dental crowns.
The most common reasons for tooth extractions are:
If it is determined that a tooth must be removed, our dentist will carefully extract the problem tooth and take every precaution to help your experience be as comfortable as possible.

We are always proud of beautiful, healthy, strong teeth. However, our lifestyle, age, genetic predisposition, trauma, and disease constantly take their toll on our healthy, functional teeth. Many people today must extract their teeth because of decay, infection, or trauma. To see if your ailing or damaged tooth needs extraction, contact Dr. Regina Powe.
Sometimes, you don’t have to extract a diseased or damaged tooth. If dental fillings in Frisco can work, then that would be better. We are only gifted with one single set of permanent teeth. Whenever we lose them, that is it. We can only get replicas like tooth implants, dentures, or bridges.
Simple Extraction – We perform simple tooth extraction when a diseased, damaged, or injured tooth is visible inside the mouth. Our dentist loosens the tooth before carefully pulling it out.
Surgical Extraction – We consider surgical extractions when a tooth is invisible. It may be an impacted tooth or have broken into pieces; the only ones left are hidden inside the gums. A surgical extraction is more invasive and involves cutting open the gums, accessing the tooth, and removing it in whole or pieces.
We utilize numbing agents and sedation dentistry to make the extraction process comfortable. For damaged teeth that can still be salvaged, we can strengthen them with restorations such as dental crowns in Frisco, TX. Contact Regina Y Powe, DDS, for tooth extraction and other restoration treatments.
