Making Tooth Extractions Easier
At Waseca Family Dentistry, we generally try to repair or restore teeth if possible. Occasionally it is necessary to remove a tooth or several teeth by performing an extraction.
Tooth extractions are the removal of severely decayed teeth that cannot be restored because of the amount of decay or with severe periodontal disease that have lost most of the supporting structures like bone or gum tissue.
Options To Replace An Extracted Tooth
There are a few options to replace an extracted tooth. The options are:
- Dental Implants
- Partial Dentures
Front Tooth Extractions
If a front tooth needs to be extracted, a temporary partial or bridge can be made and placed during the same visit as the tooth extraction. When the tooth extraction site heals, a permanent restoration can then be made.
Another option is a dental implant which can be placed at the time of the extraction if there is enough bone remaining.
Comfort Promise To Our Patients
When you need to have one or more teeth pulled, Waseca Family Dentistry is there to comfort you and make sure you are relaxed. Our professional staff and dentists will inform you about the tooth extraction and make the procedure as painless as possible.
