Get a Comfortable Tooth Extraction

Long gone are the days when you just “bit the bullet” when it came time to remove a tooth. With numbing local anesthesia and dental sedation if you need it, you won’t feel a thing when we extract your tooth! Our team will:

  • Do all we can to help you relax and feel comfortable during your procedure
  • Proceed at a pace you’re comfortable with and make sure you know what’s going on at each step of the removal
  • Give you instructions to follow to make sure your recovery goes well

In general, you shouldn’t exercise or exert yourself for at least 24 hours after your extraction. This helps ensure you don’t have any excess bleeding or experience a dry socket.

Replace Your Missing Tooth for Best Results

It is always best to replace your missing tooth if possible. It helps you keep your other teeth from shifting their positions and interfering with your bite. Here are two fantastic options for a new replacement tooth:

  • Standard Dental Bridge – We can have a bridge made to fill the gap in your smile. It will anchor to your teeth on either side and have an artificial tooth in the middle.
  • Dental Implant-Crown Combination– An implant and crown will not only replace your missing tooth, it will also help prevent the loss of bone cells in your jaw that cause changes in your facial structure and shape.
