At Brite Dental, our mission is to protect the health of your teeth. From preventive treatments such as cleanings and exams to restorative treatment such as fillings and crowns, we strive to save your natural teeth because it is usually the best for your oral health.
Sometimes, however, an extraction may be the only way to protect your teeth, your comfort, and your smile!
Reasons for Dental Extractions
Sometimes a troubled tooth can put your health at risk. Some of those cases may include:
- Irreparable trauma
- Deep decay
- Failed root canal therapy
- Split teeth
- Problematic wisdom teeth
We do not take removing a tooth lightly. Not only will we provide comfortable treatment, but we will also give you post-treatment care and provide tooth replacement options to meet your lifestyle, health, and budget.
Teeth Extraction Procedures
We always start by making sure each patient is comfortable for treatment by administering the appropriate level of anesthetic. We understand that each person is different and what may work for one person may work differently with another. Dr. Shanmugham is a great communicator and will make sure that your concerns are heard and that you are feeling comfortable throughout your procedure. As our patient, you are always our number one priority.
We will gently remove your tooth, clean, and seal the site with stitches, if necessary. We will give you instructions on how to best care for your extraction site and schedule a follow-up appointment with you to check your healing progress.
We know that having a tooth extracted can feel traumatic, but we will partner with you every step of the way so that you always have the information you need to make a great decision regarding your oral health.
Tooth Replacement Options
When you have a tooth removed that was part of your smile, you will probably want a solution to complete your smile and look like yourself again! We offer tooth replacement options for every lifestyle so that you can make a decision that works best for you.
Dental implants – Often the best way to replace a missing tooth because it preserves bone structure and is convenient!
Dental bridges – A great option for patients who cannot have dental implants or would like another option. A bridge can act as a placeholder for your missing tooth, keeping your other teeth from shifting.
Dentures or partial dentures – A good option for patients with multiple missing teeth who cannot or do not want dental implants. We can even use a few strategically placed dental implants to anchor your denture in place.
