Extractions

Extractions

Despite our best efforts to save a tooth, sometimes extraction is the only alternative. If this is necessary, we here at Family Dentistry of Poplar Bluff are committed to providing you the most comfortable, pain-free procedure possible.

Factors leading to extraction include:

  • Extensive trauma
  • Substantial tooth decay
  • Gum Disease
  • Badly cracked or broken teeth

No one likes the idea of losing a tooth; however, there are options we can provide to fill the empty space or replace the tooth, such as:

  • Implants
  • Implant retained dentures, which look and feel like normal teeth
  • Traditional dentures
  • Dental bridges, which are three or more porcelain teeth fused together

The idea of having a tooth extracted is scary for some. Don’t worry though, with our gentle and pain-free sedation methods, you have nothing to fear. We can also work out payment options to fit your budget and keep you financially sound.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding extractions or to learn more about restorative dental options, please contact your Poplar Bluff dentist at 573-785-5100 today.
