GENERAL TOOTH EXTRACTION

When a tooth is damaged or unhealthy and unable to be preserved by other means, your doctor may recommend extraction to prevent it from causing further oral health problems.

An unhealthy tooth may need to be extracted if oral health complications are severe, such as gum disease or tooth decay. Other times, a healthy tooth may be recommended for extraction as part of orthodontic or oral surgery treatment. Whatever the reason, general tooth extraction is a common procedure that can improve the health of the surrounding and prevent further oral health complications.

Boulder Oral Surgery performs many oral and maxillofacial surgery treatments at their practice in Boulder and Longmont, Colorado, including general tooth extractions. Patients of all ages and conditions come to see Dr. Nedbalski and Dr. Lerner to receive their experienced care and tailored treatment plans.

Your oral surgeon will discuss your tooth replacement options if you need the extracted tooth replaced. Dr. Nedbalski and Dr. Lerner perform dental implant-based tooth replacement options, such as dental implants and All-on-4, and can help you decide the right treatment plan for you.

Local anesthesia is often selected for a routine tooth extraction procedure, but other options for anesthesia may be discussed to accommodate your ideal treatment plan. Your treatment plan, including your options for anesthesia, will be discussed during your first visit to our practice.
