No patients want to hear they need a tooth removed. That’s why we encourage you to visit us regularly for dental checkups. We can stay on top of problems with your teeth and gums before they get out of hand. However, no matter what the condition of your smile when you visit, we’ll try to save your tooth rather than removing it.

If  an extraction is necessary, we’ll gently remove the tooth from your mouth. Sedation is available if you want extra help remaining calm. We can also dim the lights and offer a blanket for a more comfortable atmosphere.

After the procedure, and when you’ve had a chance to heal, we’ll discuss your replacement tooth options. They include:

  • Implant-Supported Crown – Replace a single tooth with a natural-looking crown paired with a dental implant for support.
  • Traditional Bridge – Fill the space left by one or multiple extracted teeth by anchoring a bridge to nearby teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – Instead of relying on nearby teeth, a bridge can be attached to implants for added stability.
  • Partial Dentures – A removable partial denture can close the gaps if you have healthy teeth remaining.
  • Traditional Dentures – These full-arch removable dentures typically need adhesive to remain secure in your mouth.
  • Fixed Hybrid Implants – Replace an entire arch of teeth with implants. It keeps your jawbone healthy and restores your strong chewing power.

We’ll be happy to examine your mouth when you come in for your initial consultation and X-rays. Then we can give you a good idea of the cost for your procedure.

For most types of extractions, you can expect the site to heal within seven to 10 days. You play a role in how quickly you heal, however. We’ll give you complete aftercare instructions for you to follow. The closer you stick to these guidelines, the quicker and more comfortable your healing period will be.
