Crosspoint Family Dental will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, but there are times when a tooth extraction is the only option. We provide extraction services in the Westford, MA area and you can call for a consultation or appointment today.
Needs for Tooth Extractions – serving Westford, MA
Some teeth require extraction because they are severely decayed, suffer from advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired.
A tooth may need to be extracted if the following occurs:
- Impacted teeth
- Fractured teeth or roots
- Severe decay
- Infection or abscess
- Advanced periodontal disease
- Orthodontic correction
- Malpositioned teeth
Before an extraction, our dentists will take an x-ray to understand the shape and position of the tooth and the surrounding bone. Depending on the complexity of the case, we may refer you to an oral surgeon for the procedure.
What to Expect Following an Extraction
Crosspoint Family Dental will work hard to minimalize the pain and discomfort you may suffer following an extraction but a certain amount is to be expected. The discomfort and pain can be minimalized with pain medication and an ice pack applied to the face. This should lessen within three days. If you are still suffering from pain, swelling, bleeding or fever, please call our office immediately at (978) 459-6467.

Highly Innovative Technology & Professional Dentists
Our Happy Patients
I am a new customer to the dental practice but am very pleased with the level of care that I have a received so far. My hygienist, Stephanie, was very thorough (and gentile) during the cleaning/exam and went above and beyond to assist me with my insurance coverage. 5/5 would recommend to anyone in search of a new dentist!
I have been going to this practice close to 20 years. There was a different doctor before however even the new team is great. No complains over any of their treatments or recommendations.
