If a tooth is severely damaged, the best option may be tooth extraction.

At Westwood Dental, Dr. Shelly M. Galvin, Jonathan B. Smith, and Melinda A. Garcia and our staff are committed to giving you a comfortable, pleasant experience. After your tooth extraction, your mouth will heal in just a few days. Follow Dr. Shelly M. Galvin, Jonathan B. Smith, and Melinda A.

- A dental bridge
- A denture
- A dental implant restoration
