At our offices in Orem, Lindon, and Vineyard, our ultimate goal is to save and restore teeth. However, sometimes a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be saved. In these cases, it will need to be extracted and our team is ready.
Extractions at Canyon Gate
We realize how stressful surgery, including tooth extraction, can be. We do our best to make your experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible Our staff is friendly and professional. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help alleviate any anxiety you may be feeling towards your treatment. We take as much time as needed to make sure you are comfortable and to do the job correctly the first time. We encourage patients to discuss any concerns or special needs they may have before we begin the procedure so that we can provide the best patient care as possible. Extractions at Canyon Gate Dental are quick and painless.
There are several tooth replacement options for when a tooth is extracted. Before bridges or implant restorations can be completed, a bone graft (socket preservation) is usually required. The bone of the socket that held the tooth goes through many changes once the tooth is removed. In as little as three months, the bone of the jaw can diminish. For successful implant placement, you must have optimal jaw health and a bone graft ensures this. Bone grafts are quick and painless and are often performed as soon as the tooth is extracted. This procedure is more efficient and affordable than the future surgeries, such as bone augmentation, that would be needed if the jaw was not preserved.
At Canyon Gate Dental, we can take care of all your tooth extraction, bone grafting, and tooth replacement needs. When you’re ready, make an appointment at one of our offices and we will begin to discuss your treatment options.
