A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. This procedure is used when a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling or crown or when the tooth cannot erupt fully from the gums due to impaction. In some cases, an extraction can be performed to prevent infection of the surrounding teeth.
Your extraction will begin with x-rays to confirm that your tooth is visible and healthy enough to remove. We can also provide sedation options to make you more comfortable during your procedure. Once we’ve determined your treatment plan, we will start the surgery. After you’ve met all of the qualifications for your treatment, we will extract the tooth using a gentle, precise method and will provide you with an aftercare package to help you recover properly. You will want to rest and relax for the rest of the day following your extraction.
When your tooth is extracted, it will need to be replaced to prevent your other teeth from shifting out of place. A dental implant is a great way to replace the root of the missing tooth, while a dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Both of these restorations will be custom-made to fit your smile perfectly and comfortably. During your consultation, your dentist will talk to you about which restoration will work best for you. Before undergoing any procedures, our dentist in Marysville will perform a physical examination to make sure you’re healthy enough for the procedures.
