Extract Failing Teeth to Prepare for Implants
We offer tooth extraction for a variety of dental concerns, including:
Retained Baby Teeth
If a child does not loose their baby teeth naturally, they may block or damage permanent teeth as they grow in. Gentle extraction of these teeth helps for proper permanent tooth growth.
A tooth that is severely damaged or broken may cause constant tooth pain. Extraction of hopeless teeth gives instant relief of pain and prevents further damage to the jaw or surrounding teeth.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease
If gum disease is left untreated, bacteria can destroy the tooth structure and the jaw bone that holds the tooth in place. Extraction of teeth infected by disease will help treat gum disease and prevent a spread of infection.
If you are in need of dental implants for a failing tooth, we will have to extract the tooth in order to make space for an implant. Dental implants look and function like a natural, healthy tooth.
After a tooth is extracted, it leaves behind an empty socket where the tooth roots once were. We offer effective socket preservation through bone grafting. Socket preservation adds bone to this empty socket to restore the proper volume and even out the jaw. Once the bone graft has healed and fused to the surrounding jaw bone, dental implants will be able to be placed to replace the extracted tooth.Watch Video
