Extractions, which remove teeth at the root, are a common treatment for a variety of reasons. In children with baby teeth that are slow to fall out, extractions may be necessary to make room for erupting adult teeth or to accommodate orthodontic treatment.
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that generally erupt in young adulthood. If not removed, they can often lead to a number of problems like misalignment, headaches and jaw pain. Wisdom teeth are commonly extracted as a preventative measure and, while the procedure itself requires both local anesthesia and often a sedative, the side effects are relatively minimal.
In more serious cases, teeth may require extraction because they are too badly damaged, decayed or diseased to be restored.

They explain what treatment they recommend in very plain language, and tell you your options. Then they tell you what the cost of each option will be. I appreciate that.
Also, they’re open on Saturday. Hugely convenient. Two thumbs up.

I had an excellent experience. The staff work very well as a team. I was treated with respect. Nothing was done without my consent. I highly recommend this establishment. All of the staff informed me of their part in my process and made sure I understood and agreed. There is not enough good reviews, they deserve the best!

Rachel the dental hygienist was PHENOMENAL. She answered literally every single question (even the silly ones). I left feeling more confident and less scared about how my tooth had been feeling. From the sweet woman that answered the phone when I set an appointment, to the kind lady that greeted me at the front desk, and the hygienists that I was chatting with on the way back to the exam room,....

I’ve been a patient at Dental Depot for a few years now and am quite happy with it. The office is well-organized and efficient, and the staff are warm and friendly. I went for a cleaning and received excellent service from Brenda and Brittney. The only thing that would make my visits better would be music that is softer and more relaxing.🙂

Thought I had broken a tooth but I actually broke a porcelain crown. Initial cap was still in excellent shape so he smoothed out the rough edge on the crown and sent me away. I was very appreciative of his honesty and candidness. Been going there for years and don’t plan on changing. Very happy!
