Tooth Extraction Services
At Tuscany Dental Care, we work to save and restore your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are times that a tooth extraction is in the best interest of your current and future smile health. When removing a tooth, you can depend on the experienced skill and gentle touch of Dr. Duque. She treats patients of all ages in general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
When visiting our San Antonio practice for a tooth extraction, you’ll be kept comfortable at every step. Tuscany Dental Care offers modern patient amenities, the latest technology for gentle dentistry as well as options in sedation dentistry for the most relaxed experience possible. During a tooth extraction, we value the importance of preserving the surrounding bone and tissue. We not only take the time to explain the tooth extraction process and post-operative instructions, but we also make sure our patients understand why a tooth extraction is necessary in each particular situation.
Dr. Duque performs tooth removal for patients who have the following:
- Severe decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Orthodontic correction
- Fractured teeth or damaged roots
- Impacted teeth (wisdom teeth)
For many patients, tooth replacement is suggested after an extraction. This not only restores the aesthetics of your smile, but it can also help prevent dental problems from shifting teeth and bone loss that commonly occurs from missing teeth.
Treatment in One Office
One of the distinct advantages to having us perform any necessary extractions is because not only can we take out the affected tooth or teeth, but we can work with you and plan how we are going to replace them. There are a number of options for replacing missing teeth including dental implants, dental bridges, and removable dentures (or partial dentures). For example, if we are planning on making a removable denture to replace teeth that will be extracted, we can make the denture ahead of time, and then insert the denture for you at the time of extraction.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are known for causing more harm than good. It’s quite common for wisdom teeth removal to be recommended as a preventative measure in young adults. Extracting these third set of molars can eliminate the risk for misalignment issues, pain, jaw cysts, gum infections and even bone loss that result from impacted or poorly erupted wisdom teeth.
When it comes to wisdom teeth removal at Tuscany Dental Care, you can trust Dr. Duque to use the latest techniques to reduce your discomfort and accelerate your healing.
