Though it is usually best to save a natural tooth, it is not always possible. Sometimes an extraction, or the removal of a tooth, is necessary. At Bowen Family Dentistry, we do extractions every day. Some of the common reasons for an extraction are crowding, decay, or trauma. Before the procedure, your dentist Dr. Adam Bowen will numb the area to minimize discomfort. He will remove the tooth and give you specific instructions about aftercare.
After an extraction, there are several options for tooth replacement. Dr. Bowen can make a bridge to fill the gap. In the case of full mouth extractions, he can use his expertise to make a beautiful full set of dentures for you. If you elect to have an implant placed, we can refer you to an oral surgeon.
