WE WANT TO AVOID EXTRACTIONS
Missing teeth can have several health and appearance implications. Obviously, a missing tooth will cause your smile to look significantly different. It can even make you hesitant to smile or speak in public situations. Also, when a tooth is missing, the underlying bone structure begins to dissolve away. Our first goal is always to avoid an extraction if possible.
SOMETIMES EXTRACTIONS ARE UNAVOIDABLE
Despite the best efforts of you and your dentist, in some cases extracting a tooth may be necessary. This necessity may be brought about by advanced gum disease, serious infection , severe tooth decay, a fractured tooth, or a tooth that has been impacted into the gums.
THE EXTRACTION PROCESS
Even when an extraction is necessary, a skilled dentist is usually able to complete the extraction with minimal discomfort and pain. The use of anesthesia, modern training techniques, and advanced equipment has made tooth extractions far less dramatic than they once were. In advanced complex cases, your dentist may refer you to a specialist. Once the extraction is completed, it will be important for you to follow the post-extraction recovery instructions.
