Extractions Preservation

At Elwood Avenue Dental, we understand no patient looks forward to a tooth extraction and preservation procedures. That’s why we always put your comfort and safety first. Dr. Salayta and his team take the time to explain available treatment options to ensure you feel confident in your dental health decisions. Our patient philosophy includes delivering the safest and least invasive care possible.

Despite the best dental care, sometimes tooth extraction becomes necessary. Often, it’s because of overcrowding, such as when wisdom teeth come in; there simply isn’t any room for them without causing other teeth to shift out of alignment, which causes more problems with bite and function. In other cases, severe decay or damage has so impacted the tooth that removing it is the only solution to alleviate pain and save surrounding teeth. Specialized tooth preservation techniques may also be used as part of your dental care.


Although tooth removal is a minor surgical procedure, we understand many patients have concerns, from anxiety about pain to concern about how tooth replacements look. We work closely with our patients to put you at ease, every step of the way.
