Restore Your Oral Health & Function With an Extraction
Decay is the #1 reason for extraction, followed by gum disease. Source.
There are a variety of reasons
for a tooth removal procedure, such as badly damaged or seriously infected teeth. However, this can be avoided if you visit us for regular dental checkups. Your dentist can stay on top of your dental health and treat infections in the early stages. That way, they won’t progress and put other healthy teeth at risk.
If we need to extract a tooth, we’ll make it a gentle experience for you. We’ll make sure you don’t feel a thing by numbing your mouth with a local anesthetic. However, you can opt for sedation if you’d like. You can also listen to music or watch TV. Blankets and pillows are available to keep you comfortable.
Once your tooth has been removed, we recommend replacing it as soon as possible. This prevents bone loss in your jaw, teeth shifting out of place, and other problems that affect your dental health. Your dentist will discuss your replacement tooth options:
- An implant-supported dental crown can replace a single missing tooth. We make our crowns in-house with our CEREC machine.
- A traditional or implant-supported bridge can replace one or several missing teeth in a row.
- Partial dentures can close the gaps between remaining healthy teeth.
- Removable or implant-supported dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Implant dentures offer some benefits you can’t get from conventional dentures. For example, implants preserve your bone strength. This keeps your face fuller so you look healthier and more attractive. With implants, you’ll also never need adhesive for your teeth.
