Dr. Shepherd on Oral Surgery Options Read Transcript
One component to your dental care is that occasionally you need to have a tooth taken out and, fortunately, that's something that we can do in-house. There are a lot of dental offices that simply don't even want to touch that part of dentistry. If you need an extraction they're going to send you to the oral surgeon, and you simply have to go there to have it done. That's something that we do in-house, which is a great benefit for our patients who don't want to have to go to multiple different offices to get their dental work done.
Maybe they need a tooth to be taken out so that they can have an implant placed. Maybe it's a tooth that needs to be taken out before they have braces done. Maybe it's a tooth that needs to be taken out before they have a bridge placed. That is something that we do here in the office, so that you don't have to go multiple times, multiple different dentists, take the risk of things being lost in translation between the offices. Simply one-stop shop. You come in and you get the tooth taken out and you get the tooth restored in the same place.
We will always explain all of your options and ensure your comfort during every procedure. We can even help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options!
Tooth Removals And Extractions
If a tooth is beyond repair and causing you pain, we can perform a gentle tooth extraction to relieve your discomfort and prevent the problem from getting worse or affecting your other teeth.
Another common reason people need to have teeth removed is because their wisdom teeth are coming in improperly. In this case, we will carefully assess your situation and perform a wisdom teeth removal procedure.
If you have been told that your jaw is not thick or dense enough for a dental implant, visit our Albuquerque, NM dental office for a free second opinion!
Even if your jaw is not strong enough for a dental implant, we may still be able to help by strengthening your jaw with a bone graft!
If your gums have receded, it’s not just a cosmetic dentistry problem. Your teeth rely on your gums to maintain their sturdy foundation. Your smile can also become further damaged because your tooth roots are exposed. This condition can leave your teeth sensitive if not painful.
