Tooth Extraction

Teeth may require extraction when they are misaligned or un-restorable (root canals, crowns, or fillings are unable to prolong their use). Patients typically experience pain free surgery thanks to the use of powerful local anesthetics that block nerve receptors. General anesthetics are also available to allow patients to sleep through surgery. Prescription medication is typically used to ensure patient comfort during recovery.

Tooth Replacement

Missing teeth can be replaced by removable dentures, bridges, or dental implant supported crowns. Dental implants most closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Patients choosing dental implant replacement often benefit from minor bone grafting at the time of extraction to preserve the normal anatomy required for dental implant restoration.
