Tooth Extraction
Our dentists will use every measure to prevent tooth loss, but sometimes a tooth extraction will still be necessary. This might be the case when a tooth is too badly damaged to repair, a baby tooth doesn’t fall out on its own, more room is needed for teeth to move during orthodontic care, or a tooth is too far out of alignment to be corrected.
Before a tooth is removed, the dentist will take an x-ray to understand the shape and position of the tooth and surrounding bone. For a simple extraction, we will first apply a local anesthetic to prevent pain and discomfort. After the procedure we will provide you with care instructions to alleviate discomfort and ensure proper healing.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are the last molars, or “third molars,” that develop on each side of the jaws. Wisdom teeth usually emerge in the back of the mouth between the ages of 16-20.
Wisdom teeth are a valuable asset to the mouth when they are healthy and properly positioned. But when the jaw isn’t large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, they can become impacted (unable to come in or misaligned). Wisdom teeth may also grow in sideways, emerge only part way through the gum or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. These are all common issues that require wisdom tooth removal.
A wisdom tooth extraction is a relatively routine procedure. The dentist will numb the area in your mouth with a local anesthesia or use IV sedation so you are asleep during the procedure. After the tooth is removed, we will provide care instructions to ensure proper healing.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are considered the ideal restorative solution for replacing failing or missing teeth. Implants are strong, incredibly similar to a natural tooth, preserve the structure of the jawbone, and don’t affect neighboring healthy teeth in the mouth. Dental implants are permanent, non-removable replacement teeth that function on a higher level than any other artificial teeth while maintaining a reputation for longevity and attractiveness.
An implant starts with a substitute tooth root that fits into the jawbone. Through a natural healing process, the bone and the implant become fused together, forming a permanent foundation upon which we can fabricate a new tooth. Through this process, we can replace a single tooth or several at a time. When the implant and the bone have become fully integrated, custom porcelain dental crowns or bridges will be attached to create a finished, realistic-looking tooth.
