Teeth need to be extracted for many different reasons. Often times extractions can be very simple. We are well versed in all types of extractions and we can remove teeth either with local or intravenous sedation.
When we are placing dental implants, we usually like to do this procedure at the same appointment that we extract the teeth. There are some cases where this may not be possible. Sometimes we need to utilize bone grafting/guided tissue regeneration procedures to preserve the bone and healthy tissue around it in order to place the implants with a greater chance of integration success. Your doctor will let you know if this is necessary for your case.
Please discuss your extraction needs early in your treatment so we can properly guide you and sequence your care.
