Tooth Extractions - Weston, WI
Jessica Shares Her Patient Experience with Tooth Extraction
We Only Extract Teeth When Absolutely Necessary
Have you been told you need to have a tooth extracted and are worried about how it will affect your smile and overall quality of life? Tooth extraction is a very common procedure. Over 74 percent of adults have had at least one tooth extracted during their life. There are many reasons that can cause a tooth to require extraction, but we will always do everything we can to save your teeth first.
Reasons Why You May Need Tooth Extraction
- Baby Teeth: While baby teeth normally fall out on their own, there can be several reasons that require their extraction. Baby teeth can grow in misaligned, prevent permanent teeth from erupting properly, or just not fall out at all. In any of these cases, extraction is usually best to prevent further problems.
- Oral Trauma: When your teeth or jaw are damaged, the trauma can cause irreversible harm to your tooth structure. If a tooth is beyond saving, it will need to be extracted to save the jaw and surrounding teeth.
- Periodontal Disease: If periodontal (gum) disease has progressed into the late stages of advanced periodontitis, damage to the jaw bone, tooth roots and gums can be cause for tooth extraction in order to save the surrounding teeth.
- Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth are commonly extracted during adolescence to prevent complications from occurring. This is a routine procedure that we commonly perform in our office.
We offer socket preservation which fuses outside bone material to your jaw in order to restore and retain adequate levels.
Socket Preservation Restores Your Jaw for Dental Implants
After extraction, it is important to restore the socket where the tooth once was, if a dental implant will be added in its place. Without a tooth root to stimulate the jaw bone, the bone volume begins to recede and can cause complications such as shifting of the surrounding teeth or bone loss. To restore the socket and prevent bone deterioration, we offer socket preservation which fuses outside bone material to your jaw in order to restore and retain adequate levels. Once your jaw bone is restored, you may receive dental implants to replace the extracted tooth and complete your smile.
