Tooth Extractions and Replacement Options
We aim to help our patients preserve their natural teeth. In situations where severe decay, fractures, or pain are involved – it may be necessary to have the tooth extracted.
Should our dentist recommend such a procedure, it is usually due to circumstances such as:
- Severe decay
- An abscess
- Fractures of the tooth or root
- Undergoing full mouth rehabilitation
- Placement of dentures
Getting a tooth pulled is a relatively simple process in most cases. Our team is dedicated to ensuring your optimal comfort throughout the entire procedure, as well as the follow up process. The area of the extraction will be thoroughly numbed so that all discomfort will be minimized.
Additional sedation is also available to help you relax. We use nitrous oxide in our office, which is effective at helping to diminish pain as well as ease anxiety. It’s also completely safe to drive yourself home afterward. Should you require a more complex extraction or want a deeper level of comfort, ask us about other types of medication that may be available.
If you are experiencing a painful emergency, such as a toothache, pulling the tooth may be the fastest way to alleviate discomfort if a root canal is not an option.
Replacing Your Missing Tooth
After having a tooth pulled, it’s important that you replace your tooth as quickly as possible. Doing so preserves your natural bite patterns and prevents tooth movement due to the open space. Some of the most efficient ways to preserve your bite include placing an implant, bridge, or even a partial denture. Our experts will help you to choose the one that’s best for your individual needs.
