Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Extractions

How can we help you?

If you are new to Denver or just looking for a new dental office for your family, you probably have a lot of questions about the services we provide, insurance coverage, and how we can help you achieve your oral health goals.

Here are some of the most common questions we receive. If yours is not listed here, contact us and we will be happy to help.


In modern dentistry, we realize the crucial role that your teeth play. Aside from the function they provide – comfortable chewing, clear speech – the presence of a tooth also stimulates healthy bone growth in your jaw.

But despite our best attempts to save tooth structure, a time may come when we have exhausted all available treatment options, and removing the tooth is the only healthy solution. Some of the situations that lead to tooth extraction are:

  • Severe decay or periodontal disease
  • Trauma
  • Overcrowding
  • A failed root canal
  • Problematic wisdom teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth

The only way to know if you need an extraction is through an exam with Dr. Taylor. She will evaluate your situation and explore every option to save the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving and threatens your oral health, Dr. Taylor will discuss extraction and why it’s necessary.

Our team understands that no one wants to hear they need to have a tooth removed. But we assure you that we will be with you every step of the way to support you. After extraction, Dr. Taylor will be happy to discuss tooth replacements like a bridge, dental implant, or dentures.

At Central Park Dental, we perform comfortable dental extractions in Central Park (formerly Stapleton) for our patients every day. Please call us so we can help you!
