Extractions Handled with Care
While keeping your natural teeth is always a priority, there are some instances in which tooth extraction may be necessary. In the circumstance that you do need a tooth extraction, it should be handled with expertise and advanced planning to ensure your oral health is not harmed now or in the future. After tooth extraction, we always recommend replacing the missing tooth with a lifelike dental implant so you are able to return to a normal lifestyle. There are many reasons why someone may require a tooth extraction but choosing an oral surgeon to perform the procedure ensures a safe and virtually pain-free experience.
Common Reasons for Tooth Extraction
When an accident occurs and a tooth is broken, we can extract it to prevent discomfort and further damage to your oral health. Many times, broken or knocked out teeth still have pieces of bone imbedded into the jaw and gums that require tooth extraction.
When gum disease has gone untreated and progressed to advanced periodontitis, the infection will start damaging the jaw bone and teeth. In order to cleanse the infection, we will need to remove compromised teeth.
Teeth that are failing are often extracted in order to be replaced with dental implants. Dental implants are a natural-looking and fully functional replacement for missing teeth. We can replace extracted teeth with single, multiple and full arch dental implants.
Wisdom teeth commonly grow in during the late teenage years, but there is often not enough space in the jaw for them. We perform wisdom tooth extraction to prevent damage to the jaw and surrounding teeth as well as alleviate pain and chance of infection.
