Tooth Extraction

Tooth extractions can involve the removal of a single tooth, tooth fragments, multiple teeth or full mouth. Each of these situations can present different challenges and the plan for the type of tooth replacement can influence the method and procedures used.

It is not recommended to allow teeth to deteriorate to the point that bone support is lost with the increased desire for dental implants. Removing a bad tooth while the bone support is still adequate allows later placement of a dental implant or esthetic results for dental bridge work.

If a tooth or teeth are broken down so far that they are under the gums, we will open the gums just enough to get the access needed for removal but still taking care to preserve the bone for a future restoration.
