Do I Need an Extraction?

It's normal to question whether tooth extraction is necessary. Our practice strives to protect and preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are certain circumstances where extraction is the only option to restore your oral health. Some common reasons for extraction include:

  • Your tooth is severely damaged or cracked
  • Failed root canal therapy
  • A tooth infection has spread to surrounding teeth
  • Gum disease has loosened your tooth
  • You need to make space for dental implants
  • You need a tooth removed prior to getting braces
  • You have wisdom teeth that need removal due to crowding

Our Extraction Process

Dallas tooth extraction servicesWhen our dentist determines that extraction is necessary, we'll begin the process and can complete it in as little as one office visit. We'll take detailed x-rays of your tooth to evaluate its condition and create a plan for extraction. Our dentist will begin by numbing the area around the affected tooth and providing sedation if needed. They'll then gently remove your tooth and place gauze over the area to help the tissue heal. Depending on the type of extraction required, we can also perform bone preservation.

During the extraction process, the tooth removal leaves a space that exposes the sensitive bone. In this instance, we can perform bone preservation that places additional bone in the area for added strength. Afterward, we'll place sutures to ensure the bone heals correctly.

Educating You on Replacement Options

When you come in for your initial visit, our dentist will help you determine the tooth replacement option that's right for you. We're proud to offer various restorative options that are durable and blend in with your remaining teeth. These options include bridges, partial dentures, full dentures, and dental implants. We discuss each treatment and answer your questions so you can choose the one that best fits your needs, lifestyle, and smile goals.

Dental implants are a popular choice as they are the only option to replace both root and crown. A dental implant consists of a body-safe titanium post used to anchor a restoration to your jaw. Our dental implant offerings include:

Implant-Supported Crowns: An implant-supported crown might be right for you if you had a single tooth extracted. We use durable and natural-looking materials for our crowns to help make your smile look seamless.

Implant-Supported Bridges: If you had multiple teeth in a row extracted, a bridge could replace all of them. An implant-supported bridge consists of prosthetic teeth called pontics and crowns to help secure your restoration in place.

Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures provide you with the same feel and fit of traditional dentures with the permanence of implants. They can replace entire arches of your teeth to create a uniform and long-lasting smile.

All-on-Four: This restorative option is similar to implant-supported dentures; however, it requires fewer implant posts and minimizes the effect on your gums and surrounding tissue.

Making Your Visit Comfortable

At Superior Smiles, we're committed to making you as comfortable as possible during your visit. We're more than happy to explain the extraction process and answer any questions you may have about it. Our goal is to help you feel more confident and informed during your visit.

For patients who need additional help relaxing, we offer various sedation options. The best option for you will depend on the complexity of your extraction and whether you plan to drive yourself home after the procedure. Our options include oral and IV sedation, as well as nitrous oxide.

Tooth Extraction FAQs

Our staff is excited to answer your questions about our tooth extraction services. Some frequently asked questions about tooth extractions include:

Is tooth extraction uncomfortable?

Although tooth extraction has a reputation for being painful, with proper numbing and sedation, you can expect us to maximize your comfort.

Once the extraction has been completed, you'll be provided with step-by-step instructions to care for the area at home. Although each patient's recovery time varies, a typical recovery period is 7-10 days.

You'll need to restrict physical activity for the next few days, as it can potentially cause throbbing and bleeding. You also should not consume tough foods that could open your sutures.
