From time to time, it happens—whether because of an injury, poor oral health, or some other reason, you need a tooth extraction. Thinking about it can be depressing, but the alternative isn’t any fun either. If left untreated, the infection from a compromised tooth can spread to nearby teeth that may be healthy, causing serious problems later on. What’s more, a tooth in this position could also be putting the brakes on another treatment or procedure you need.
Here are a few reasons for why a tooth extraction might be necessary:
- You have a severely decayed tooth
- A tooth is broken but can’t be treated with a crown
- You need orthodontic care
- A tooth has become impacted
Every tooth extraction begins with us numbing the area we’ll be working on. To help our Sapulpa patients feel comfortable, we also offer sedation dentistry. Once you’re comfortable, we’ll perform the extraction as quickly as possible. Some stitches may be required, but after a brief recovery period, you’ll be back to your normal self. At that point, we can start talking to you about your replacement options. Those include:
We’ll create a fully customized treatment plan based on your needs and what will work best for your smile.
