Tooth Extraction Parker, CO

If you are experiencing extreme sensitivity or are suffering from advanced periodontal disease, you may be required to have a tooth extracted. With a simple extraction, the dentist can safely remove the affected tooth without the need for major surgery.

There are numerous situations in which a simple extraction can help alleviate pain or prepare you for another cosmetic or restorative procedure. Some common reasons for extraction include:

    Advanced periodontal disease that has loosened the tooth roots.
    Extra teeth or baby teeth that impede adult teeth.
    Preparing a patient for orthodontic treatment.
    Removing a fractured or malformed tooth.
    Severe tooth decay which cannot be remedied with root canal therapy.


  • Signs that you might need a tooth extraction

    At Lotus Family Dental: Yuki Dykes DDS, we practice preventative care and can help in an emergency situation. If you feel intense discomfort in your tooth or your jaw, give us a call since this could be a sign of a dental abscess or severe infection. Simultaneously, if it hurts when you bite down or chew this can also be an indication of a cavity or infection. Other signs like puss or bleeding indicate that you should call 303-502-2744 and schedule an appointment with our family dentistry office right away.

  • What you should know about wisdom teeth removal

    If you still have your wisdom teeth, you may need to have them removed. We invite you to schedule an appointment with our dentist office so that we can examine your teeth and take X-rays to determine whether or not you should keep your wisdom teeth. Not everyone needs to have them out, so it depends on how much room you have and whether they are growing in straight or impacted. Also, if you have worn braces, they might need to be removed to prevent them pushing the other teeth forward. The process of removing wisdom teeth is roughly the same as any other tooth with the exception of when and why we perform the procedure. At Lotus Family Dental: Yuki Dykes DDS, we typically recommend wisdom teeth removal in the teenage years. General extractions are more common as people age and have a tooth that needs to be removed due to a severe infection or significant damage. To find out whether or not you should keep your wisdom teeth, call (303) 502-2744 to schedule an appointment to speak with Dr. Dykes.
