Removing a natural tooth is never ideal. However, despite our menu of modern tooth repair treatments, it may be necessary to extract a damaged or severely decayed tooth. At West Hill Family Dental, you can trust that if we suggest an extraction, it is in the best interest of your overall smile health. Our office provides comfort amenities, sedation dentistry and the latest dental technology to ensure your visit is as stress-free as possible. Dr. Hemphill proudly offers tooth extractions for both children and adults as a part of our commitment to provide complete dental care at every stage of life.
Extracting a tooth can be a solution to relieve your pain and also protect your surrounding teeth. There are a variety of circumstances in which a natural tooth may need to be removed in an adult or child, including the following:
- Severe decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Extensive damage
- Orthodontic preparation (crowding)
- Baby teeth that won’t fall out
- Impacted wisdom tooth
Damaged Tooth Removal
A damaged tooth can be the result of a sudden traumatic injury or years of poor oral hygiene. In either case, if the damage cannot be repaired with a filling, crown or other dental treatment, an extraction may be needed. When removing a damaged tooth, Dr. Hemphill utilizes a gentle approach and a highly precise technique that preserves as much healthy bone and tissue possible. Our office also offers modern anesthetics as well as sedation dentistry options to eliminate discomfort during the procedure. While we will go above and beyond to keep you comfortable during your visit, we also provide special post-operative instructions to improve your recovery experience at home.

What Our Patients Say
West Hill Family Dental has been serving my entire family for 10 years. They have always been great and treat us like family. I will continue to use them because of the high level of care and comfortable atmosphere.
Today was my first visit with West Hill Family dental. The staff was awesome! So warm and welcoming! I felt at home the moment I walked in the door. Melissa (hygienist) was awesome and very sweet. Dr. Hemphill was very personable. I am a nervous Nelly with the dentist but they really helped me feel comfortable.
"Going to the Dentist," isn't something most folks look forward to. Fortunately, the Team at West Hill Family Dental makes that experience an enjoyable event with a friendly, thoughtful and genuinely concerned approach to both routine care and one-off emergencies. The atmosphere is relaxed and positive; everything from scheduling to changes is accommodated with little fuss and a genuine enthusiasm to see you at the next opportunity. And the overall quality of care, execution and attention to customer needs are unmatched by most practices, and certainly by the cookie-cutter pop-ups that abound elsewhere. Highly recommended, family-oriented and very professional in every aspect of care and delivery - they're definitely on the list of recommendations to new residents and neighbors!
In the past I have had bad experiences with dentist and I have switch many times and I think I have finally found my forever home. Kim and Monica at the front desk are amazing they make sure that if you have any concerns, they will accommodate you in any way they can. They also socialize with you which makes visiting the dentist feel like visiting family. This is by far the best dentist I've ever been to and would recommend them to anyone.
