On occasion, Dr. Ford, Dr. Guter, and Dr. Gray may recommend dentoalveolar Surgery (removal, of impacted teeth, difficult extractions, and treatment of diseased teeth, soft tissues, and the jawbone.) for cosmetic or health reasons. If your dentist has recommended a tooth extraction due to infection, decay, or lack of space, our oral surgeons at Oral Surgery of Tidewater can provide you with the necessary treatment. Our caring and highly trained team will ensure that your tooth extractions are handled with care and keep you as comfortable as possible before, during, and after treatment. If you require a tooth extraction we invite you to contact us at (757) 499-6886 and schedule your appointment today.
Saving your teeth is always our first goal, however certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Our oral surgeons use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your dental experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals. For more information on tooth extraction and to schedule your personalized consultation at our friendly dental office, we invite you to call or visit us today. We are committed to improving your smile!
Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, your dentist may recommend that you replace the extracted tooth.
