Enjoy Inexpensive, Gentle Dental Extractions
Saving your natural teeth is our top priority at Smile Symphony, but there are times when a tooth simply cannot be saved, and in these cases the only choice is to extract the tooth. The reason we would want to extract a tooth such as this one is because if you leave a broken-down tooth in the mouth for an extended period of time, you run the risks of getting an infection, having increased bone loss in the area, and damaging the adjacent teeth.
It may be necessary to extract the tooth due to conditions such as:
- Severe Tooth Decay
- Advanced Gum Disease
- Chronic Infection
- Fractured Roots
- Toothaches and Abscessed Teeth
- Denture Treatments
- Orthodontic Therapy
We perform extractions
We understand that our patients want to have as many services as possible provided for them in our office, where they are most comfortable; for this reason, we do most of our own extractions. However, there are times when a tooth is better taken out by a specialist (usually certain wisdom teeth), and in these limited cases we will refer you to an oral surgeon.
Keeping You Comfortable
During your dental extraction, our dentists will make sure you feel as minimal discomfort as possible. We will thoroughly numb the area around the tooth and even offer sedation if you like!
Advantages of having us take the tooth out
The distinct advantage of having us perform any necessary extractions is that we take out the affected teeth - and we work with you to plan how we are going to replace them. There are a number of options for replacing missing teeth including dental implants, dental bridges, and removable dentures (or partial dentures). For example, if we are planning on making a removable denture to replace teeth that will be extracted, we can make the denture ahead of time, and then insert the denture for you at the time of extraction.
Replacing Your Missing Tooth
Why replace a tooth that you just had pulled? Because leaving the space empty can cause expensive complications later on. Your other teeth will start to drift or shift out of place due to the extra space. This can change the way your teeth bite together, straining your jaws and even causing fillings or crowns to wear out prematurely. That’s why Smile Symphony offers affordable tooth replacements like bridges and dental implants.
Nobody likes to have to have a tooth taken out, but if you do need to have an extraction, our office can help. Call us or contact us today to make an appointment.
