    Comprehensive Exams

    The first thing we do with a patient is an oral exam. This starts with a visual exam, periodontal health review, and then we use an intraoral camera. This camera allows us to view your mouth from multiple angles and brings it up on the screen in front of you.

    This is where you become our second in command, as you can see what we see, ask any questions, and better understand your recommended treatment plan.

A dental extraction may be recommended when a tooth is deeply decayed, causing severe pain or in conjunction with orthodontic treatment. Pain management techniques and technology have made dental extractions possible with little to no discomfort.

After this procedure, be sure to rest and follow the doctor’s orders. You can use a cold compress to keep swelling down and reduce pain. Also, limit yourself to soft foods after surgery. Avoid drinking from a straw and smoking to prevent dry sockets. Your dental team will provide after care instructions following your extraction.

Extraction Site Preservation
When removing a tooth, it may be important to consider what will be done with the empty space after that tooth is removed. If nothing is done with the extraction site, the jaw bone may degenerate and change shape during the healing process.

A dental implant or bridge can be used to fill in the empty space.
