A tooth extraction may be used to remove a diseased, decayed, impacted or otherwise problematic tooth.
When necessary a tooth extraction can help restore the health and function of the bite.
The tooth extraction procedure can typically be completed in a single visit to our Sudbury dentist office. Patients will be provided with a wand anesthetic option to numb the area to be treated. The tooth and tooth root will be gently removed from the gum line.
Dental Implants for Extracted Teeth
Dental implants are the most natural way to replace a missing or extracted tooth. If a tooth is extracted, particularly in the “smile-zone” or if the missing tooth compromised the alignment of the bite, patients may choose to replace the tooth with a dental implant. If a tooth extraction is necessary, Sudbury Dental Arts, an Apex affiliate, can help coordinate the placement of a dental implant and create a custom tooth restoration.
Replacing missing teeth is essential to maintaining the stability of the bite and function of the jaw. Missing teeth can allow deterioration of the jaw bone, gum line and the overall oral wellness of your smile. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant helps to prevent further damage to the smile and bite. A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth that looks and functions like your natural teeth. Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to develop and typically emerge during the late teens or early twenties. For many patients as wisdom teeth begin to grow as they develop complications and the wisdom teeth require extraction. Wisdom tooth removal is a common procedure that can prevent infection or overcrowding issues.
As a family dentist, Dr. Cheung will track the development of your child’s wisdom teeth in their later teen years. If extraction is necessary Dr. Cheung will coordinate the surgical removal of the wisdom teeth. The procedure is routine and can be completed from the comfort of our dentist office. Patients will be provided with personalized post-treatment instructions to allow for a comfortable recovery.
