EXTRACTIONS: Dr. Jacob Kent will do everything he can do to help you keep your natural teeth in your mouth—as long as those teeth are healthy and not contributing to any problems with your other teeth, jaw, and gums. But if the tooth is damaged, decayed or infected and it is beyond saving, you will be better off removing it to keep your mouth healthy. COMMON REASONS FOR TEETH EXTRACTION
- Damage beyond repair
- Severe gum disease
- Infection from severe decay
- Trauma, injury, or accident
- To make room & correct crowding
Dr. Jacob Kent and his team have the tools and techniques to provide safe and less painful extractions.
REPLACE THE MISSING TEETH
It is clinically very important to replace the extracted or missing teeth with an implant or a traditional crown-bridge. If the patient is missing a single tooth or multiple teeth in same location or different locations, a dental implant supported crown is an ideal solution to replace the missing teeth. It is important to consider that if the missing teeth is left untreated, the adjacent natural teeth can move, which in the long term can affect patient’s bite and chewing efficiency and occasionally TMD.
In many cases, Dr. Jacob Kent can combine the tooth extractions with implant placement to minimize pain and discomfort and shorten the treatment time.
WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL
Some of the things we look for before suggesting wisdom teeth removal in Surprise include:
- Periodontal disease
- Active decay
- Partial eruption
- Pressure on adjacent teeth
In some cases, they can become impacted within the jaw or only erupt partially, making them prone to infection. When decay or gum disease develop, the adjacent teeth suffer as well. Wisdom teeth removal in Surprise may be an essential step to ensuring the best overall health for the rest of your smile.
During your dental exams, Dr. Jacob Kent will order a panoramic X-ray to evaluate the size, positioning, and development of your wisdom teeth.
