Tooth Extractions End Tooth Pain

Sometimes a Tooth Can’t Be Saved

When your teeth are cracked or decayed, the pain can be intense. So much so that it becomes a major disruption in your daily life. Eating, drinking, speaking, and sleeping can become nearly impossible. Our team’s priority is always to alleviate your discomfort while also saving the affected teeth. In cases of a broken tooth, a rotten tooth, or impacted wisdom teeth, tooth extractions may be the only viable option for ending the pain and protecting the surrounding teeth, gums, and bones. When this happens, count on us to provide careful, compassionate tooth extractions that remove the troubled teeth as gently as possible. With a board-certified oral surgeon, a dental anesthesiologist, and a team of other specialists and general dentists on staff, we’re the practice to trust for your tooth extractions.

Expert Care, Rapid Recovery

Some complex tooth extractions, including impacted wisdom teeth extractions, require a skilled and experienced hand to perform correctly. Our multidisciplinary team plans each surgery with modern imaging and digital software planning technology, always taking the most minimally invasive approach. Minimally invasive treatment means fewer problems, less bleeding, less swelling and shorter recovery times. Pre-surgical planning is important but proper post-surgical care is another way to avoid complications. Dry socket is a common complication that can easily be avoided. A blood clot normally forms after a tooth has been extracted to help the empty socket heal. If this clot doesn’t form or becomes dislodged from the socket before healing is complete, the bone and nerves underneath can become exposed. To prevent this from happening and ensure the fastest recovery possible, we’ll review post-extraction instructions with you and allow you to ask any questions you have before recovery even begins.

If your tooth is badly decayed and can't be saved, your dentist may recommend tooth extraction.

Why You May Need Tooth Extractions

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Disease or infection
  • Oral trauma damage
  • Stubborn baby teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Eruption of wisdom teeth
  • Dental implant placement

Follow Extractions with Restorations

While extractions can take away tooth pain, they leave you with gaps that not only detract from your smile but can themselves develop into tooth problems. Your jawbone becomes susceptible to deterioration in areas where no tooth roots are anchored. The loss of bone mass can lead to additional teeth becoming loose and falling out on their own. Avoid all of these complications by regaining a full, healthy smile with dental implants. These permanent substitute teeth look, feel, and perform just like natural teeth. If you’ve already suffered some bone loss, our dental implant experts can rebuild your jawbone through bone grafting and then provide immediate implant replacement to restore the health and beauty of your teeth. Don’t leave painful teeth or gaps in your smile when a complete one is within reach!
