The extraction of a tooth is a necessary step toward ensuring that your oral cavity remains the healthiest that it can be. Typically, if a tooth is broken or damaged by decay, we will attempt to fix it with such restorations as crowns or fillings. However, there are times when the damage can be too extensive for the natural tooth to be repaired. If this happens, the tooth will need to be extracted.

We will always discuss with you what you should and shouldn’t do prior to these appointments, and after, but reach out if there’s anything else you’d like to know.

Dr. Lawlor belongs to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists and has been specifically trained in cosmetic dentistry. The American Dental Association does not issue special certifications or licenses indicating which dentists are cosmetic dentists and which are not. The dentist you go to for twice-yearly check-ups is probably not going to be the same dentist you go to for cosmetic enhancement. Unless you’re in the qualified hands of Dr. Lawlor!

We bill most dental insurances and accept credit cards or CareCredit as forms of payments. Unfortunately, we don’t accept MaineCare. Any questions? We’re here to help!
