Restoring Your Teeth with Precision & Skill
For many adults, losing a tooth is reminiscent of childhood and the tooth fairy. But under certain circumstances, tooth extraction can actually be the best way to restore the health of your mouth, regardless of your age.
Some of the most common reasons that a tooth may need to be extracted include:
- Weakening due to cancer treatment
- Wisdom teeth
- Baby teeth that don’t fall out
At AG Dental Studio, we pride ourselves on delivering excellent care to each and every one of our patients. We understand that a tooth extraction can be a frightening or unpleasant experience, but our entire staff seeks to alleviate your fears right from the start. Our Montrose dental office may be at the forefront of dental technology, but we haven’t lost sight of the need for patient satisfaction above all else.
What is Involved in a Tooth Extraction Procedure?
Preparation is key to a successful tooth extraction. Our team begins by taking an X-ray of the area so we can identify the best way to remove the tooth. Depending on the extent of your surgery, antibiotics may be prescribed for usage before and after the procedure.
We will utilize one of two methods to extract your tooth:
- Simple extraction: This procedure is used for teeth that can be seen in the mouth and is commonly performed by general dentists. After using an elevator to loosen the tooth, the dentist will then remove it completely with forceps.
- Surgical extraction: A surgical extraction is reserved for teeth that have broken off at the gum line or cannot yet be seen in the mouth. Wisdom teeth extractions are accomplished through surgery.
Following your tooth extraction, we will provide you with clear instructions on what to expect in the coming days. It is important to exercise good hygiene around the area of extraction to prevent infection and speed your recovery.
Your Options after a Tooth Extraction
Many people are hesitant to undergo a tooth extraction procedure because they fear the final outcome – won’t people notice the gap in your mouth? Fortunately, our office provides several options for patients who are now missing a tooth due to a dental extraction.
From single or multiple implants to bridges and crowns, you can have confidence in your smile even after you’ve had a tooth pulled. We can advise you on the optimal solution given your circumstances and are careful to ensure that you feel comfortable with the results. Whichever replacement option you ultimately choose, it will enable you to get back to your normal life quickly and with minimal complications.
