Your oral health is important to us. For more information on our surgical dental treatments, including tooth extraction read below.
While we try to do as much as possible to save your teeth, it is not always possible. Extractions are sometimes the only successful treatment for teeth with a deep stress fracture, a substantial amount of decay, or severe breakage. Additional reasons for extractions include periodontal disease or poorly positioned teeth. The long-term health of your mouth depends on the health of each tooth. At TimberView Family Dentistry, we can determine if an extraction is necessary and discuss the replacement options with you.
Grafting is a procedure performed after an extraction to hold the bone and increase the options for replacement at a later date. Grafting also helps maintain bone level of teeth around the tooth that was removed. The procedure takes place on the same day as the tooth extraction.
