Tooth Extractions Webster, TX

Why Extractions?

Painful toothaches, tooth decay or infection are not normal dental conditions, and can often be signs of more serious concerns that may require immediate attention on the teeth that cannot be saved. Advanced gum disease, dental trauma and other situations can all lead to teeth that become harmed beyond repair and may need extraction in order to maintain the integrity and health of the rest of your mouth. Tooth extractions are never the first solution and our periodontists will always do everything they can to first try to save your natural tooth, but there are some circumstances that require extraction in order to promote a future of healthy smiles.

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

Before discussing tooth extraction, our periodontists will thoroughly examine and evaluate your tooth and oral health to determine the best course of treatment. The following are common instances where a tooth may be beyond saving and require extraction to protect the rest of the smile:

  • An infection that is spreading to surrounding healthy teeth, or through the gums or tooth roots
  • Decay that is affecting the tooth’s supporting structures
  • Retained baby teeth
  • Fractured Tooth Roots
  • Dental trauma
  • Excess teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Preparation for dental implants

Tooth Extraction for Dental Implants

In the event that a patient has an irreparable tooth that faces extraction, but knows they want to have it replaced to prevent bone recession and the risk of losing surrounding teeth over time, our periodontists can perform tooth extraction in preparation for dental implants. Dental implants are modern dentistry’s solution for permanent tooth replacement. They use a durable titanium implant that resembles a screw that attaches directly to the jaw bone to provide stable support for a dental crown that attaches above the gum line. By providing patients with dental implants to replace their tooth after extraction, they can look at tooth extraction as a step towards optimal oral health, rather than a last resort solution.
Stop the pain and restore oral health with tooth extraction.
