When you see an oral surgeon for a tooth extraction, it’s usually after all attempts have been made by dental providers to save the tooth. You will be in excellent hands at Advanced Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Studio for your extraction — tooth extractions are a routine procedure at our practice, and what’s more, Dr. Jesin and Dr. Lytle can restore your oral health and smile with the highest quality tooth restorations after your extraction. When you come in for your consultation appointment, the doctors will help you develop a treatment plan to extract and then replace your missing tooth — we offer several tooth restoration options and pride ourselves on the safety and artistry of our work restoring smiles.
During your consultation, you and the doctor will discuss the details of your extraction, including your anesthesia options and the best options for tooth restoration. We generally use local anesthesia for extractions, so you will be conscious and aware during treatment but will not feel any sensation of pain. If you require multiple extractions, or if your extraction is complicated, Drs. Jesin or Lytle may recommend intravenous (IV) sedation for you. Our team will work with you to make sure you are at ease and comfortable before any treatment takes place. If you tend to feel anxious during dental procedures, don’t hesitate to talk to us about it — Dr. Jesin, Dr. Lytle, and the team can provide you with additional options for your anesthesia.
Why Do I Need to Have My Tooth Removed?
There are many techniques that dental professionals use to try to save a natural tooth, such as crowns, fillings, and root canals. But sometimes a tooth is too damaged to repair, or it may be threatening the health of the surrounding teeth. In these cases, extraction is usually the next step.
Your tooth may need to be extracted for a few different reasons, including
- Tooth crowding
- Previous restorative treatments have failed to save the tooth
- Tooth damage that cannot be repaired
- Advanced gum disease
- Severe infection or tooth decay
- Malformed teeth
- Preparation for dental implants
Fortunately, there are many incredible tooth restoration options available to replace missing teeth, and Drs. Jesin and Lytle will be happy to speak with you about these options. Our goal is to go above and beyond for our patients every time, so when you come in for a tooth extraction at our practice, you can expect personalized care that will also address your restoration goals.
