At B&G Family Dentistry, our ultimate goal is to keep you and your teeth healthy. We always attempt to keep and restore teeth if possible. Sometimes if the damage or infection is too advanced, it is in your best interest to remove the tooth and prevent further pain and damage. If you think you may need a tooth extraction, please schedule a consultation at B&G Family Dentistry. Our doctors will evaluate the affected tooth and your overall oral health to determine what the best treatment option is for you.
In circumstances where the affected tooth has completely erupted, is fully visible and does not suffer from extensive damage, decay or infection, a simple tooth extraction may be recommended.
In situations where the affected tooth has not completely erupted, is not fully visible or suffers from severe infection, decay or damage, a surgical tooth extraction may be required. A surgical tooth extraction is more complex and may require a more involved procedure. You may have a few stitches in the area to help with healing.
Wisdom teeth are the third molars that erupt between age 16-25. It is common for wisdom teeth to not have enough room to erupt. When this happens they can become stuck in your jaw. This can cause serious problems with your other teeth or the health of your jaw. At B&G Family Dentistry we’d be happy to provide a consultation to determine if wisdom tooth removal is recommended for you and your family.
At B&G Family Dentistry, we work hard to ensure that no matter what treatment, the patient is comfortable and secure. We are able to provide excellent local anesthesia and sedation to make sure that your visit with us will be as comfortable as possible.
After any oral surgery procedure or extraction, our team at B&G Family Dentistry with review in detail any restrictions or precautions after the procedure. We will also schedule any needed follow-up appointments to make sure the area is healing. Following a tooth extraction, treatment to replace your missing tooth is recommended. Neglecting to replace missing teeth can actually cause issues with the rest of your smile. At B&G Family Dentistry we have many options to replace missing teeth and keep your smile beautiful and healthy.
