When a tooth cannot be saved, a simple extraction procedure can help minimize future dental issues.
There’s more than one way to “pull a tooth.” Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth; surgical extractions deal with more complex situations, including removing wisdom teeth or teeth that have broken off at the gum line. Garden Home Dental focuses on the former but works closely with oral surgeons to coordinate treatment when a medical case is more complicated.
- Our goal is for patients to maintain their natural teeth for life, but some teeth need to be removed to preserve a person’s overall oral health.
- Simple tooth extractions can be done in the office without surgical instruments.
- If a patient requires an oral surgeon, we’ll work with the outside dental offices to make the referral process as seamless as possible.
- Garden Home Dental also offers dental implant and tooth replacement options to fill the gaps created by removed or missing teeth.
