It is important to schedule a consultation to review your medical history and current health. Because of the nature of the tooth extraction process it will require varying forms of anesthesia, Speak with us to discuss your unique treatment options.
Only dentists highly trained in oral surgery can perform tooth extractions. At your appointment Dr. Latourelle will numb the tooth to prepare it for extraction. Once the patient is relaxed, the tooth is removed using forceps to grasp the tooth and gently rock it back and forth to loosen it from the jawbone. After removal the gums are sealed with a few medical stitches.
After tooth loss recovery relatively simple by introducing soft foods and keeping the mouth clean with gentle brushing as the stitches heal or dissolve. In many cases patients will be recommended to replace one or more missing teeth with a dental crown, partial denture or implant-supported denture.
