Tooth Extractions Shoreline Seattle WA
Teeth may require extraction for any number of reasons, including deep cracks, failed restorations, recurring endodontic problems, severe decay, extensive crowding and more.
As with any surgical procedure, tooth extractions should be performed with the most conservative, minimally invasive methods possible. Extraction techniques that preserve the integrity of the surrounding bone and gum tissue will make tooth replacement easier and more esthetic. Discomfort and swelling will be decreased, and healing will be faster.
When a tooth is removed, however, there will be a shrinkage of bone in the area. To preserve facial support and counteract the negative effects of this, we recommend socket grafting, a simple and extremely predictable procedure. By preserving the jawbone’s shape and form, socket grafting facilitates implant and other methods of tooth replacement. Socket grafting uses the same bone replacement materials utilized in orthopedic and plastic surgery.
