Dental Surgery: Extractions and Bone Grafts
Our goal at Crane Family Dentistry is to provide the services you need to maintain the health and structure of your teeth for as long as possible. We also consider your overall wellness when making decisions for your smile.
While our goal is to protect your teeth, there are cases where our best and only option for maintaining your oral health is tooth extraction.
If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, Dr. Crane may recommend fixing it with a filling or crown. However, when there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth may need to be extracted (removed)
If our skilled dentist finds that removing a tooth is necessary, we know that you will most likely have concerns and questions about the procedure. Will it hurt? Which dentist will perform the procedure? Should you take a day off from work or school to rest and recover? Can you consider tooth replacement options like partial dentures, dental implants, or dental bridges?
- We dedicate ourselves to ensuring that all of our patients are fully informed and educated on the dental treatment we provide. Dr. Crane and his staff look forward to answering any questions that you may have about a procedure. We also dedicate ourselves to providing a relaxing and comfortable environment for our patients, even during the most anxious of appointments.
- Before your dental surgery appointment, we will provide patients with the tooth replacement options that best fits the individual’s situation. After the procedure, our staff will give thorough verbal and written instructions for the days to come after a dental surgery procedure while also supplying any necessary medications and work/school excuses.
If you have a severely damaged or broken tooth that is causing you pain, we encourage you to contact our dental office. If you have questions about dental extractions or tooth replacement options, we are here to chat and ease your concerns.
