Convenience and Comfort
From start to finish, we will make sure that your procedure is a comfortable one. Dr. Mark Tickle always makes the comfort and health of his patients a top priority. He will apply anesthetic in order to ensure you don’t feel a thing.
If you require a simple extraction, that means your tooth is already erupted from your gums. Simple extractions often do not require stitches and heal quickly. Though some bleeding is common after an extraction, it should subside within about 30 minutes as your body’s natural ability to heal takes over. Your mouth should heal quickly, especially if you keep the wound clean and avoid drinking through a straw or smoking, which can cause a dry socket.
If you require a surgical extraction, we will need to expose your tooth hidden under your gums. With surgical extractions, you will likely need stitches and may have a follow-up appointment to have the stitches removed. Even surgical extractions heal quickly if you follow the appropriate after-care instructions.
Tooth Replacement Treatment
Having a gap in your smile could make you feel self-conscious. It also puts your health at risk because your remaining teeth may shift, causing problems with your bite. Along with tooth loss comes bone loss. When your root is no longer present to stimulate bone regeneration, you can begin to lose valuable bone. This puts your adjacent teeth in jeopardy as their foundation could become unstable.
If your extraction requires tooth replacement, we will discuss your options with you. We offer a wide range of services to restore your health and appearance.
Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement today. Not only do they keep your adjacent teeth from shifting, dental implants also work much like your natural tooth and stimulate bone growth.
We place and restore dental implants here at our office.
Dental bridges are a common way to fill the gap in your smile. While they do not prevent bone loss, they do act as a space holder for your remaining teeth to keep them from shifting. This can help protect your bite.
Porcelain dental bridges are an affordable option and offer an alternative to patients who are not healthy enough for dental implants.
