Meet your hygienist, Shannon

If your tooth is damaged beyond the point where it can be restored, our dentists may recommend a tooth extraction. By removing the tooth we can prevent any further damage from occurring and begin the process of replacing the tooth and restoring your health and smile. 

Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:

  • Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure.
  • 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.

What is PRF and what are the benefits? 

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is used in many dental surgical procedures such as extractions and dental implants. PRF accelerates the healing process, decreases surgical pain and swelling for both dental implants and wisdom tooth extraction. PRF also improves the strength of bone’s direct structural and functional connection to implants.
