Are Tooth Pain and Other Symptoms Disrupting Your Life?

Symptoms like tooth pain, swelling and other types of discomfort often signal an oral health problem, and potentially the need for tooth extractions. Although we aim to save teeth, extraction may be the best course of action for your smile in situations in which problematic teeth cannot be saved. Leaving failing or unsalvageable teeth in place increases risk for complications and prevents you from enjoying better oral health. An experienced surgeon, Dr. Lauren Anderson offers general tooth extractions and selective wisdom tooth extractions to get you out of pain and back to enjoying your smile once again.

The Importance of Tooth Replacement After Extraction

Replacing teeth after tooth extractions is important to your oral health and smile. Prolonged tooth loss leads to bone loss, shifting of surrounding teeth, changes in bite and other problems. Dental implants often are the ideal option for tooth replacement, as they closely mimic tooth root and crown structures. In some cases, Dr. Anderson performs “immediate implants” whereby the dental implant is placed after tooth extraction in the same visit.

Preserving extraction sites immediately following tooth extractions may be necessary to prepare for future dental implant placement.

Extraction Site Preservation for Dental Implants

Preserving extraction sites immediately following tooth extractions may be necessary to prepare for future dental implant placement. With a socket preservation procedure, Dr. Anderson adds bone and tissue regenerative factors directly in the tooth sockets (hollowed spaces in bone left by tooth roots). This minimizes the bony arch collapse in these areas, creating a solid foundation and support for your future dental implant.

Gentle, comfortable tooth extractions are possible at the skilled hand of an expert.
