Dental Extractions at Our Family Dental Office
At Prairie Dental Care, we provide dental extractions without the need for a referral to a specialist. Most patients really appreciate the ability to get this service from dentists that they like, know, and trust.
Both Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma are experienced and skilled when it comes to extractions. They also provide effective solutions to restore your smile using dental implants, dental bridges, partial dentures, or complete dentures, depending on what will work best for you.
We will take care of you while you recover and make sure that everything goes smoothly throughout your treatment.
When Dental Extractions Are the Answer
A dental extraction becomes necessary when no other treatment option will work. The cause might be:
- A failed root canal
- A tooth broken at the gumline
- Extensive bone loss
- Serious periodontal disease
- Decay into the root
We strive to provide pain-free treatment. Both Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma are gentle, compassionate, and understanding. We offer nitrous oxide sedation for patients who experience anxiety.
We will remove your tooth, provide you with follow-up care, and make sure you have a plan for any discomfort. In many cases, over-the-counter pain medication will be enough to manage any post-surgery discomfort.
Replacing a Missing Tooth
A gap in your smile may create problems with your bite, your speech, and your appearance. A missing tooth allows your remaining teeth to shift and can result in gum disease, sensitivity, decay, and bone loss.
We offer effective tooth-replacement options such as:
Dental implants – A dental implant can replace one tooth, or multiple dental implants can solve the problem of multiple missing teeth. They integrate with your jawbone and provide exceptional stability. Dental implants look completely natural.
A fixed dental bridge – A bridge holds an artificial tooth in place and keeps your other teeth from shifting.
Partial denture – A partial denture replaces multiple missing teeth and allows you to eat a wider variety of foods. Partial dentures will match your existing teeth.
Complete denture – A complete denture replaces all of your teeth on the top or bottom. We can design dentures that improve the appearance of your smile.
One of our dentists will give you a call on the evening after your treatment to check in and see how you are feeling and to answer any questions you may have. We offer this service at no additional charge.
