The primary goal of dentistry is to preserve your natural teeth for function and esthetics. In some situations, your teeth may be unviable, making it necessary to extract and replace them. At Southern Dental Implants & Oral Surgery, we take pride in keeping our patients safe and comfortable throughout their tooth extraction procedures, offering exemplary clinical outcomes and peaceful, low-anxiety appointments. 

When is a Tooth Extraction Necessary?

Tooth extraction may be necessary whenever a tooth is badly damaged and all other options for treatment have been exhausted. Some of the most common reasons for a tooth extraction include the following:

  • The tooth is significantly broken, often resulting from a traumatic accident.
  • There is damage to the tooth and surrounding bony anatomy due to a condition like periodontal disease.
  • There is an abscess around the tooth, causing considerable pain, and irreversible damage to the tooth and surrounding bony structures.
  • The tooth is impacted, not fully erupting through the gum tissue.

If you are experiencing any of these concerns, you may be a good candidate for tooth extraction.

A Walkthrough of Our Process

By the time you join us for a tooth extraction, you will have already met with your general dentist and will know that you have a tooth that needs to come out. At our practice, you will receive a warm welcome from our clinical care team, who will lead you to the treatment area and begin the administration of IV sedation. This ensures that you remain comfortable and fully asleep during the extraction.

We always approach tooth extractions, assuming you will get dental implants sooner or later. We opt for a conservative approach, preserving as much of your jawbone as possible to lead to an easier dental restoration down the road.
