Tooth Extractions in Longmont, CO
If you are replacing decayed teeth with bridges or implants or need wisdom teeth removed, we can help.
When are Tooth Extractions Needed?
Tooth extractions are necessary for a variety of reasons. At Artistic Smiles, we do tooth extractions in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, removal of wisdom teeth, or to replace decayed teeth with bridges or implants.
In our Longmont dental office, we have had extensive training in oral surgery so we can make this procedure as simple and painless as possible. We can perform the removal under local anesthetic unless the patient wishes greater sedation due to anxiety.
How We Use Tooth Extractions to Help Your Smile
A surgical tooth extraction is a more complicated, yet still routine procedure that requires exposing the tooth from under the gumline. Common surgical tooth extractions include impacted wisdom teeth or the removal of teeth that have broken off above the gumline. This sort of extraction usually requires a heavier conscious sedation.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common oral surgery we perform, but there are other reasons why teeth might need to be surgically removed. For children, extra teeth need to be removed to allow other teeth to grow in properly. This sort of tooth extraction sometimes coincides with the patient receiving orthodontia. In the case of adult orthodontics, extra teeth are sometimes removed to allow teeth to move into place properly.
If you are receiving chemotherapy, an organ transplant, or you are on immunosuppressant medication, you may have complications that result in the need for tooth extractions. So be sure to talk to us about any pre-existing conditions so we can prescribe the most effective treatments.
