Tooth Extractions in Austin, TX
Our dentists will do everything possible to save your teeth.
Great Teeth, Better Life!
With proper at-home care and regular visits to the dentist, it’s very possible to keep all of your natural teeth healthy for a lifetime. But sometimes life has other plans. Serious decay, traumatic injury, or overcrowding may encourage our dentists to recommend a tooth extraction.
At Austin Dental, we always prefer preventive and restorative measures to extracting a tooth. We will do everything possible to help you save your natural teeth. But when an extraction is called for, we’ll make the procedure as quick and gentle as possible.
If you’re in pain and want to learn more about our approach to dental extractions, request your appointment at Austin Dental today.
Tooth Extractions Are Never Our First Option
When you’re in pain from a toothache or have a cracked or broken tooth, you might be worried that the tooth needs to come out. Our dentists will use high-tech digital imaging technology to get a close look at the structure of your tooth. This can help us make a more informed decision about whether tooth removal is truly necessary.
Other treatment options we may consider are:
- Composite fillings, inlays, and onlays – These restorative treatments are usually best for repairing smaller areas of decay or superficial damage.
- Root canals – A bad toothache might be a sign that bacteria have reached the inner layers of the tooth. Root canals eliminate infection, relieve pain, and still leave much of your natural tooth intact.
- Veneers – If the damage to the tooth is cosmetic, veneers might be an option to restore the appearance of the tooth and protect it against future damage, too.
Replace a Missing Tooth
Following a dental extraction, we’ll talk to you about options for replacing the tooth. After a wisdom tooth extraction or when a tooth is extracted due to overcrowding, no additional restorative treatment will be needed. The remaining teeth will shift into the space left behind.
However, when a tooth is extracted for other reasons, it’s important to have it replaced. Otherwise, you’ll be at risk of decay in neighboring teeth, gum disease, and bone loss in the jaw, a process known as resorption. There’s also the cosmetic issue of a missing tooth and the fact that missing teeth can make it hard to eat and speak naturally.
Dental implants are the next best thing to a natural tooth. Placed securely in the jaw and topped with a natural-looking crown, bridge, or denture, implants look and function just like a real tooth.
You’ll be able to eat, speak, smile, and live a healthy and confident life!
