Gentle Extraction of Problem Teeth
A COMMON ORAL CONCERN
Tooth extraction is actually a fairly common procedure that many adults go through at least once during their lifetimes. While we will always do everything necessary to save your natural teeth, sometimes there are circumstances where tooth extraction is needed. Contrary to popular belief, tooth extraction can be a nearly painless experience, with most patients only reporting a mild pressure sensation, and can relieve you of tooth pain or oral discomfort.
WHY TOOTH EXTRACTION?
If a tooth is infected, severely damaged or causes tooth pain, it is important to get it treated as soon as possible and this may mean a tooth extraction. Leaving a problem tooth untreated could lead to future complications like a spreading of infection, trouble eating, or damage to surrounding teeth or bones. With professional, gentle tooth extraction, we are able to remove these problem teeth and keep your oral health in ideal condition.
Common reasons for tooth extraction include:
- Tooth infection
- Crowded teeth
- Severe periodontal (gum) disease
- Replacing teeth with dental implants
- Replacing teeth with dentures
- Retained baby teeth
THE WEIMAR FAMILY DENTISTRY DIFFERENCE
When you choose Weimar Family Dentistry for your tooth extraction, we will ensure you have a pleasant and gentle experience. We have invested in advanced sedation dentistry techniques and technology, such as The Wand® anesthesia system. The Wand administers anesthesia using a computer to provide the exact amount of anesthesia needed. This will prevent you from feeling discomfort during your tooth extraction and prevent surrounding areas of your mouth from being numb.
Dr. Richard Weimar Talks About Missing Teeth Replacement
After your tooth extraction, you will need to preserve the tooth socket, which is an empty area in the jaw bone where the roots once were. We will restore your jaw using socket preservation bone grafting treatments to fill the empty space and return your jaw to proper volume. This will allow for dental implants to be placed successfully and prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting into the open space.
