Technology & Sedation Help Ensure a Smooth Procedure

Our dentists use advanced tools like digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and cone beam computed tomography. With them, they get a good look at your mouth and can identify any possible complications like impacted teeth before your procedure begins. They can even share images from intraoral cameras with you to better explain your situation.

Every tooth extraction is different. Some are simple and will likely require no more than local anesthesia to keep you comfortable. However, if multiple teeth are being removed or if we’ve found potential complications like impacted wisdom teeth, you may also want to use dental sedation. Unlike many general dentists, we offer:

  • Inhaled sedation, or laughing gas, which provides a lightly euphoric feeling
  • Oral sedation for a less conscious state

Replace Your Teeth When You’re Ready

When your extraction site has healed, you’ll likely want to replace your tooth. Your choices for doing so include a traditional dental bridge or dental implant with a dental crown attached to it. Because they are embedded in your jaw, implants function a lot like your natural tooth roots, keeping your jawbone healthy and strong. If you’ve lost multiple teeth, your options include:

  • Traditional or Implant-Secured Dentures
  • Traditional or Implant-Supported Bridge

Either of these restorations can be attached to dental implants, which will offer functionality similar to natural teeth. You may even be able to get a procedure in which you receive implants and replacement teeth immediately following your extraction. Our dentists can also perform a ridge augmentation to build up your jaw and restore its shape following an extraction, if needed.
