At Pyramid Family Dental Care in Hamden, CT, we take the health of your smile very seriously and will always put your overall oral health first.


As part of this commitment, circumstances may arise when we will suggest the complete removal of a tooth, otherwise known as a tooth extraction. Dr. Stephen Stanley will only suggest a tooth extraction if it is absolutely necessary. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in your dental care decisions.

We may suggest a tooth extraction to:

  • Prevent discomfort and continued dental pain and prepare the area for a more predictable outcome
  • Prevent decay and disease that has killed a tooth from spreading to healthy areas of your mouth
  • Remove a tooth that is broken beyond repair
  • Stop impacted wisdom teeth (third molars) from damaging your smile and causing pain

No matter the reason for your tooth extraction, we will work gently and carefully to ensure your comfort. We also understand the impact of losing a tooth and will provide you with multiple cosmetic and restorative options to replace the missing tooth. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or are worried about the state of your smile, please do not hesitate to contact our kind dental team today. We would be happy to help you in any way we can while scheduling your appointment in order to provide you with comprehensive answers and solutions.
