Extraction primary/permanent

View Video

We will do everything we can to preserve your natural teeth. However, some teeth get to a point where they become non-restorable. Excessive decay, fractures, and periodontal disease or premature bone loss as some of the reasons tooth removal may be needed. When these types of conditions exist, tooth extraction will be recommended.

After the working area has been anesthetized, the dentist will use special instruments to remove the affected tooth. When a baby tooth is removed, usually the biting of gauze for twenty minutes on the extraction site is all that is needed. When a permanent tooth is removed, there may be additional procedures performed such as synthetic bone augmentation or implant placement. Instructions and sometimes medications will be given to aid in healing, depending on the procedure.

Extractions may be recommended for damaged, decayed, or broken teeth

Testimonials
"You definitely go above and beyond in the customer service dept.  I have never been treated this good in a dentist office."

- Cathy W.

"From childhood and the ugly experiences  I suffered, it was nearly impossible to get me to a dentist by free will.  Circumstances brought me to Dr. Lee Long and the experience has brought me around.  His compassion and expertise along with lack of judgmental posturing has made me not only a patient, but a fan also.  No pain, no problem."
