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.
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.
