We Make Tooth Extractions Easy
Severely infected and damaged teeth must be removed because they risk the health of your other teeth and oral structures if left alone. Teeth must also often be removed when you suffer from dental crowding, a condition where you have too many teeth or your teeth are just too close together. There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted, which makes the procedure extremely common in our office.
If necessary, we will take 3D scans of your mouth using i-CAT™ scanning technology. This will show us the precise location and angle of your teeth and assist us in creating a personalized, detailed treatment plan.
Extracting a Tooth
From tooth decay and dental crowding to facial injuries and other oral health problems, there are many reasons why teeth fail. If a general dentist cannot restore the tooth with a filling, crown, or root canal, the tooth may require removal. Tooth extraction is often necessary to preserve the health of the mouth and surrounding teeth.
As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Robert Bryan and Dr. Jeremy Goodson are experts in the evaluation and removal of damaged teeth. Their expertise in tooth restoration, such as the placement of dental implants, makes them a fantastic option for treatment in the Oklahoma City metro area. At Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma, we perform tooth extractions routinely in our practice and provide a variety of options for tooth replacement to restore our patients' oral health, function, and smile.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
Patients visit our office to remove teeth for a variety of reasons, including those listed below:
- Gum disease
- Extreme tooth decay
- Fractures or other injuries
- Dental crowding
- To make room for implants or dentures
No matter what the cause, our oral surgeons are skilled in the removal of teeth and utilize minimally invasive techniques to lessen post-surgical swelling and ensure a quick recovery from the procedure. Before undergoing a tooth extraction, Dr. Bryan and Dr. Goodson will complete a thorough oral examination and plan the right method for removal. We will also help you determine which form of anesthesia or sedation is right for you during this consultation. Our surgeons have years of experience performing teeth extractions and have undergone extensive training to administer many different types of anesthesia.
We perform dental extractions at our state-of-the-art facility in Oklahoma City, OK, using highly detailed i-CAT™ 3D scanning technology. If a general dentist recommends tooth extraction, we will schedule you for the first available appointment and develop a treatment plan to meet your oral health needs.
Restoration After Tooth Extraction
You have several options to restore a tooth after an extraction. Our specialists can help you find the right option to restore your oral health.
Restoration After Tooth Extraction
Missing teeth can lead to a host of dental problems, including jaw bone deterioration and the shifting of healthy teeth. That is why our doctors recommend replacing your tooth with the proper restorative treatment. During your initial consultation, our surgical team will provide you with all of your restoration options for your missing tooth. If you select a dental implant as your restorative treatment, we can often place it at the time of your tooth extraction.
To learn more about your extraction and restoration options, please contact Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma to schedule your initial consultation. Dr. Bryan and Dr. Goodson will provide you with all of the information needed to select the restorative option that is right for your mouth and smile.
