Extractions can be just what the dentist ordered.

At Brident, we do everything we can to save your teeth––this includes surgery to repair gums, crowns, root canals and more. But sometimes, a tooth must be removed. This can be due to trauma, severe decay or infection, or even crowding––not enough room in your mouth for all of your teeth. Naturally, the extraction of wisdom teeth is common for teens and young adults.

Tooth Extractions, Step by Step

X-Rays

First come X-Rays. These show the condition of the surrounding bone and the position of the tooth’s roots beneath the gum line.

Clinical Review

These X-Rays are used by our experienced dentists to plan a safe tooth extraction and determine the best follow up care for your tooth, and your smile.

Taking out the tooth

To make sure the procedure is as comfortable and pain-free as possible, your dentist will administer a local or general anesthetic. Once the tooth has been carefully removed, gauze is applied to minimize bleeding. Sometimes, a few small stitches may be utilized to help your gums heal quickly.

Complications after a tooth extraction? Call Brident Dental

If you find that you experience bleeding that won’t stop or severe pain after a tooth extraction, call Brident Dental immediately. Our help line is open  24/7 and calls are no charge. If you suspect your situation to be an emergency,  please call 9-1-1.

Time to fill in that gap!

We won't let a missing tooth put a hole in your smile. Bridges will keep your smile looking great and your jaw strong and health following an extraction.

Bridge that gap

We can save your jaw even if you lose a tooth

The underlying bone can dissolve away when you lose a tooth, which puts the rest of your teeth at risk. A dentist may recommend a bone restoration and an implant to keep your gums and jaw healthy and keep those pearly whites as good as new.
