If you have a tooth that cannot be restored by a traditional dental restoration, Dr. Garibov may recommend a tooth extraction.
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While Dr. Garibov strives to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, Dr. Garibov is happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty and function.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:
- Severe bone loss that has made the tooth unstable
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Certain conditions that necessitate tooth extraction also result in jaw deformity or jaw bone loss. To preserve the bone, prevent deformity, and accelerate healing Dr. Garibov uses high quality bone grafting materials to rebuild lost bone. Our bone preservation process makes implant placements more predictable and can greatly improve your smile.
Dr. Garibov uses great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. In most situations, over the counter Tylenol and Advil are adequate for discomfort relief. We will provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so that you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.
