A tooth extraction is a procedure that we perform to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. Extractions are generally classified as either a simple, non-surgical or surgical, which involves cutting through the gums. Occasionally, a simple procedure can quickly become a surgical procedure if the tooth fractures or refuses to loosen under pressure.
A Dental Implant is a titanium metal implant designed to replace missing teeth. This device is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Our dental team at Park West Dental Group can give you more information and let you know if this is a good option for you. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant is permanent. If you currently have a denture that is loose or uncomfortable talk to our doctors about using implants to make your denture fit better and give you better function.
