Learn What Treatment Options Are Available

It is one of the most common surgical procedures done in dentistry. It requires the removal of an infected or severely damaged tooth. The extraction is typically the last resort of treatment when no other treatment options would be effective.
A professional tooth extraction is the safest way to extract a tooth. Unlike some practices, at Mint Dental, we disinfect the affected area before and after the procedure and apply sutures to avoid the risk of complications afterward.

More about Extractions

There are cases where the bone loss around a tooth is so severe that there is a high level of mobility and everything that could be done has be done and there is no improvement. Leaving the tooth in place can just lead to a periodontal abscess or other complications in adjacent teeth. This is a hopeless tooth and most be extracted.

There are other times where there is a cavity below the gum level very close to the bone. When this situation is paired with some level of bone loss a crown lengthening procedure to allow direct vision to remove the whole cavity would compromise the crown to root ratio and make the prognosis of this tooth very poor. In this case the patient is presented with these pros and cons and an informed consent decision will be made.
