Tooth extraction can be extremely anxiety inducing for patients. Our Memphis periodontal office offers several options to make the experience more comfortable and stress free.
Before dental implants can be placed, it is sometime necessary to remove a tooth or multiple teeth. Drs. Godat and Craddock utilize highly specialized instruments to remove teeth as gently as possible, to ensure patient comfort and reduce damage done to the socket and surrounding bone.
If you are nervous about having extractions, ask us about sedation dentistry. We want you to be relaxed and at ease during your procedure.
When teeth are lost to decay or knocked out due to trauma, ridge preservation may be required to maintain the shape of the socket or bone regeneration required to strengthen the bone. However, when extraction is done by our Memphis periodontists, the socket can be protected.
This allows a dental implant to be placed into the fresh socket on the same day, to start the process of integration into the jawbone. In some cases, we may even be able to affix the abutment and place a temporary restoration, so you can walk out of the office with the same great smile you walked in with.
If you are nervous about your extraction, just ask our team about sedation dentistry when you make your appointment. We have several options to keep you both comfortable and relaxed for your procedure.
If you believe you need a tooth extraction, contact our office for an appointment.
