How it works
Teeth present varied levels of removal difficulty, but our dental care team takes
pride in helping every patient get numb with modern anesthetics to start every procedure. Once anesthesia settles in, careful steps are taken with instruments designed to elevate your tooth out of place. Specific instructions help you care for the area after your procedure, with
prescriptions for any medications needed during the healing period.
While we consider the short-term management of your care, we should also discuss your
long-term plans for replacing missing teeth. Leaving a space is always an option, but spaces
in your smile can create appearance and functional challenges that are important to consider.
Teeth slowly shift or migrate into open spaces, and minimizing the instability of an unbalanced
bite can save a number of complications later in life.
Although our primary goal is to help your teeth stay healthy and functional, we can guide you
through an extraction when needed. Fortunately, your mouth can be restored back to health
after tooth removal. Since teeth help nourish our bodies and support our confidence, we will
help you find a game plan that fits your short and long-term goals.
