Professional Care for Your Smile
If your tooth has become infected, extraction is not necessarily the first or the best option. If treated quickly through root canal therapy, you have very good chances of keeping your tooth. After a successful root canal, your tooth will require a composite (white) filling and possible a cap/crown to increase its strength and durability.
In the event that your tooth cannot be saved, we recommend an extraction to prevent the infection from spreading the additional teeth and potentially causing tooth loss, gum disease and gum recession. If you require an extraction, we offer all levels of sedation dentistry to make your process easy, convenient and as stress-free as possible.
If your tooth does require extracting, a bridge or dental implant can restore functionality to your smile. Bridges are false teeth typically attached to adjacent teeth. Dental implants do not require support from the adjacent teeth, relying instead on a bio-compatible titanium screw as an anchor.
If you have any questions about oral surgery, extractions, dental implants or bridges, our team is here for you.
