Tooth Extractions: A Fresh Start For Your Smile! [BLOG]

Any dental problem you spent the holidays trying to ignore needs to be solved for the sake of your health and quality of life.

And sometimes, if the problem with a tooth has had too much time to fester, you may need to have it removed by your Sand Springs dentist at LakeCrest Dental.

Today, we’re talking about why tooth extractions are, in some cases, necessary to give your smile a fresh start!

Tooth Extractions Lead To Healthier, Brighter Smiles!

On the surface, it seems like a contradiction to say that removing teeth is a new beginning for your dental health and your smile’s appearance.

After all, you’re talking about one or more teeth that can’t be saved, right?

True, but teeth aren’t extracted unless they’re causing some sort of problem, such as dental pain, loss of function, or health threat. So once they’re gone, and in most cases, replaced right away, your mouth is healthy again and your smile is whole again.

A tooth extraction procedure paves the way for some sort of improvement, whether it’s to replace an entire arch of teeth with dental implant dentures, to relieve painful function, or to eliminate overcrowding so you can start orthodontic treatment.

That’s what makes this procedure such a valuable first step for restoring unhealthy smiles.

*Removing Problem Teeth Comfortably*

With the help of a highly-trained dental anesthesiologist, we can provide IV sedation to ensure your complete comfort and relaxation during your tooth extraction. You also have milder dental sedation options to choose from, and depending on your planned procedure, we can help you decide which will work best for you.

The goal is to make the process as painless and stress-free as possible so that nothing stands in the way of your oral health!

*Replacing Your Teeth With Quality Restorations*

Unless you’re removing teeth to fix overcrowding, you’re going to need to find the best tooth replacement option to suit your needs.

Because every patient’s situation is different, the replacement option you choose will depend on how many teeth need to be restored, as well as the state of your jawbone health.

Replacing a lost tooth right away will give you more flexibility because you’ll still have enough jawbone mass to support dental implants, which can be used in conjunction with crowns, bridges, and even dentures.

No matter what, your restorations, which serve as your replacement teeth, will be durable, beautiful, and of the highest-quality. Once your treatment plan is complete, your teeth will work properly and your smile will look bright, healthy, and attractive again.
