While our dentists do their best to save teeth, sometimes a tooth extraction is the best way to protect your smile.
The dentists at Pendergrass and Wilkie Dentistry in Amarillo, TX, have the expertise and diagnostic technology to assess your best option.
If extraction is necessary, we’ll make the procedure virtually painless so you can move forward.
Why Do Teeth Need to be Removed?
Our Texas practice will do everything possible to save your tooth, but there may come a time when the best option is to remove the tooth completely. We may recommend extraction if you have:
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Severe decay in a tooth
- Fractured or cracked tooth
- Extensive infection in a tooth's root canal
- Advanced gum disease
- Plans for dentures or dental implants

"I highly recommend this practice to anyone!"
I live in Mesa, AZ but try to come all the way to Amarillo twice a year to get my teeth cleaned. I have had some other procedures done and Dr. Pendergrass constantly asking if I am having any pain, and more than willing to make sure I am totally comfortable throughout whatever procedure he is doing. I highly recommend this practice to anyone!View On Google

What Do I Do Now? Restoring Your Smile after an Extraction
Our dentists are trained in using dental implants with a natural-looking crown to replace missing teeth. This is the preferred method since it restores the entire tooth, including the root that stimulates new bone growth in your jaw.
We can use a traditional dental bridge, supported by nearby natural teeth, to replace one or more teeth. We also offer implant-supported bridges, which can replace a long stretch of missing teeth without having to alter healthy teeth for support.
