Affordable Dental Care’s main goal is to improve and maintain your oral health. Maintaining the health of your teeth keeps them strong for a lifetime and decreases the need for extractions but unfortunately, unexpected things can happen.
There are many reasons why a tooth might need to be removed such as crowded mouth, extra teeth, or wisdom teeth. There are some instances where a tooth becomes severely decayed that it is past the point of restoration, and needs to be extracted.
Reasons for an Extraction
- Extra teeth that are causing crowding in the mouth
- Severe infection or decay
- Inflammation of the gums surrounding teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Not enough space for wisdom teeth
Extracting teeth is a minor dental surgery that can be performed by a general dentist. Our dentists and staff are highly trained and experienced to ensure that your procedures go smoothly. In the case of more major dental surgery, a trusted oral surgeon will be suggested for your care.
At Affordable Dental Care, our top priority is having you receive dental care in a comfortable atmosphere. We have taken all measures to ensure that our staff and office space is calming.
When getting a tooth extracted the aftercare is severely important in preventing bone loss. Extractions can be a scary and anxiety-filled procedure so we do our best to make sure that you are comfortable at all times.
Preserving the jaw bone after extraction is important because it affects if the patient will be able to receive a dental implant or not. Bone loss will prevent an implant from being placed. We are sure to describe the full procedure of extraction and preservation to all our patients in need.
