Dentures and extractions
Dentures and extractions are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
We replace any kind of missing teeth.
A dental extraction is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus in the alveolar bone. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease, or dental trauma, especially when they are associated with toothache.
Our dentist will numb the tooth, jaw bone, and the gums around the area with local anesthesia.
During the procedure, you may feel pressure, but without pain. This pressure is simply part of the process of removing your tooth. Your dentist may choose to section your tooth, meaning your tooth will be cut into sections and removed piece by piece. This is a relatively common procedure. Throughout the process, we will make every reasonable effort to keep you as comfortable as possible.
