Tooth extractions are used when necessary to restore health and comfort to the bite and smile. Dr. Gil practices conservative dentistry and will always work to save the tooth if possible. In many cases, a root canal can help to prevent the need for tooth extraction.
In the event that the structure of the tooth is highly compromised due to damage or decay, the tooth will need to be extracted. Dr. Gil will gently remove the tooth from the root. A suture is commonly used to close the gum to reduce the risk of infection while the root canal heals. Your Hamilton Dental Designs dental care team will provide you with personalized instructions for a speedy recovery.
Dental Implants for Extracted Teeth
Should you need a tooth extraction, you may choose to replace your missing tooth with a dental implant. Dr. Gil has advanced training in implant dentistry and can provide all phases of implant treatment from the comfort of his Allentown, PA dentist office.
Dental implants are the most natural way to replace missing teeth.
A dental implant simulates a natural tooth. The implant is surgically placed in the empty root socket and provides structural stability and support for the bite and overall smile. Patients who choose to replace missing teeth with a dental implant enjoy improved oral health and many long-term term benefits.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are generally the last molar to emerge in oral development. For many patients, the wisdom molars often become impacted or begin to cause overcrowding of the teeth. Typically patients in their late teens and early twenties require a wisdom tooth removal procedure.
Removing wisdom teeth is a routine procedure and can be completed in the comfort of our Hamilton Dental Designs office. Dr. Gil will take diagnostic digital X-rays to determine if the removal of wisdom teeth is necessary.
