It is important to consider what will be done with the empty space once the tooth is removed. Wisdom teeth are the most common dental extraction. Located in the back of the mouth, the site heals on its own with no complications. You may need another tooth removed. If so, a plan will be made. The jaw bone will degenerate if nothing is done with the extraction site. Your jaw bone will also change shape during healing, causing your teeth to shift. Problems may occur in your bite and affect your ability to speak and chew.
It is necessary for the jawbone to be sturdy for a dental implant installation. If you opt for a dental bridge, the bridge must be molded and placed as soon as possible.
Your dentist will have a conversation with you before removing a tooth. They will discuss what you would like to do with your extraction site. The dentist will be able to make a recommendation for your individual needs, and lay out a treatment plan. Make sure to schedule follow up appointments to properly care for your extraction site too!
The term pain free dentist doesn’t get said often, but this is as close as it gets. Dr. Nick does a great job. I HATE needles and he talked me through it completely. If you want top quality dental care, coupled with a very relaxing environment, this is the place! 5 stars doesn’t do it justice!
I have been going to Dr. Nick for awhile now and it is the best place to go. They know what they are doing, in addition the whole staff is great. My whole family sees him.
Thank you so much for making me feel safe and comfortable after a couple terrible dental experiences at other offices. You guys are amazing!
