Illustration of tooth being extractedIn some cases, you may require an extraction. This procedure is the most common oral surgery that we provide. It’s our goal to preserve healthy teeth as much as we can. There are some instances, however, where the removal of a tooth is in your best interest. Some of the reasons that people have their tooth extracted include:

  • Severe periodontal disease
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Injury or emergency
  • Toothaches
  • Full mouth rehabilitation
  • Before starting orthodontic treatment

Your Replacement Options

Once you have had your tooth extracted, we’ll encourage you to plan on replacing it. Without something else to hold the place of your tooth, the rest of your teeth will begin to shift out of place and lead to a misaligned smile. We can discuss options including fixed bridges or dental implants to fill the gap and restore the full function of your teeth.

Alternatives to Tooth Extraction

If you have a tooth that is infected or painful, we may be able to give you a root canal, perform soft tissue therapy or fit you with a dental crown.

Once your tooth’s structure is sound, you can look at your options for the next steps of treatment that suit your individual concerns.

Our Comfortable Care Options

When you require oral surgery or any other procedure, our aim is to make sure you’re comfortable throughout the entire process. We’ll numb the area around the extraction site before starting. Your other options include inhalation sedation or oral sedation. You can also choose to have safe, gentle sedation dentistry that will assist you in relaxing.

Inhalation sedation is fast-acting and reversible. It allows you to drive home afterwards. If you prefer to have oral sedation, have someone drive you as the drowsiness can last for a few hours after your extraction.
