Simple and Surgical Extractions
Permanent teeth are meant to be permanent. But in certain cases, the best option is extraction.
We wish that we could save every tooth. But sometimes, whether a tooth is damaged or decayed, your dentist may determine that a tooth is beyond repair. Extractions may also be necessary in order to reduce crowding prior to orthodontic treatment, to remove teeth that have been compromised due to periodontal (gum) disease, or to eliminate infections.
How we can help:
In most situations, depending upon your health and dental anatomy, we are able to perform simple and surgical extraction right in our Harlan office – saving you the hassle of traveling to an oral surgeon.
Your dentist will administer local anesthetic to numb the area and ensure you are comfortable during the entire procedure. Once the tooth is removed, a bone graft or collagen dressing may be placed in the socket site to help with healing.
If you think that you are in need of having a tooth or multiple teeth extracted, we encourage you to contact our office today. Harlan Dental is ready and waiting to help you achieve a healthier smile!
