Tooth Extractions Only When Necessary
If you are in need of a tooth extraction, we’ll provide gentle, quality care. Although we avoid tooth extractions whenever possible, there are several reasons that a tooth extraction may be recommended. Sometimes, a tooth extraction can benefit the health of your smile depending on the situation. If you believe you may be in need of a tooth extraction, call any of our dental offices in the Jacksonville metro to schedule a consultation.
Common Reasons for tooth extractions include:
- Impacted wisdom tooth
- Severely decayed or infected tooth
- Crowded teeth
- Injury or accident
- Periodontal disease
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth often begin to grow without proper space in the jaw. This leads to impaction—the tooth does not erupt through the gums and bone completely or straight. Impacted wisdom teeth often cause patients great deals of discomfort, and are at risk of infection as well as harming surrounding teeth. Extracting impacted wisdom teeth as soon as possible is very important. At Harbour Dental Care, we can extract these impacted teeth with care, taking precautions to avoid harming surrounding teeth or nerves. After extraction, most patients feel a sense of relief from discomfort and pain.
Replace a Missing Tooth with Dental Implants
Dental implants replace missing teeth with a long-lasting restoration that functions as a natural tooth. A dental implant can give you back your smile! A dental implant uses a three-part tooth restoration made up of a post, abutment and dental crown. If you are interested in dental implants, our team can schedule a consultation at any of our Northeast Florida dental clinics to evaluate your smile and build a custom treatment plan that works for you!
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Lasting solution
- Doesn’t rely on surrounding teeth for support
- Blends in naturally with your smile
- Helps preserve jaw bone
Bone Grafting Can Restore Lost Bone
For treatments such as dental implants, bone grafting is sometimes necessary before the restoration can be placed. Bone grafting increases the amount of bone in the jaw to be able to properly support a dental implant. During a consultation for treatment, your dentist will inform you if bone grafting is necessary. Bone grafting is a simple, yet effective procedure that will give you the help that you need to be able to reach your dental goals and improve your smile!
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Provides Faster Healing
Platelet-Rich Plasma is a method used to lessen pain for oral surgery patients and improve the healing process. With PRP, you can have a dental experience with less pain in a way that is both safe and convenient. PRP encourages bone and tissue growth and can be beneficial in the healing process. Your dentist can discuss the benefits of PRP with you if recommended during your oral treatment.
Restore Your Smile With Full Arch Restoration
If you are missing several teeth, full arch restoration could give you back your smile! When teeth are missing, chewing becomes difficult as well as speaking. Your confidence can be greatly affected as well. By replacing all of your teeth on the upper or lower jaw, you can improve the overall function of your smile as well as restore your confidence! To find out more about full arch restoration, call our team to schedule a consultation. Our team will examine your smile, answer any questions you may have, and recommend the best treatment options for restoring your smile!
