Extractions are performed when a tooth is broken, fractured or too badly damaged by gum disease to be saved with gum therapy. In this case, it is necessary to take the tooth out so that the disease cannot spread to other parts of the mouth. Although our philosophy is to remain as conservative as possible and avoid unnecessary trauma, in some cases the tooth must be pulled.
Our comfort protocol involves giving anti-inflammatory medication beforehand (and anti-anxiety medication if you prefer) and using minimally invasive techniques.
We use our comfort protocol both before and after your appointment to ensure that you experience the least amount of discomfort. After an extraction your doctors may recommend either a dental implant or bridge to replace the tooth. Call now to schedule for an extraction or find out more about dental implants and bridges.
