Immediate Dentures After Extraction
If necessary tooth extraction leaves you with little or no healthy teeth on your dental ridge, then Dr. Pun can create a restoration plan to immediately replace your missing teeth. Immediate dentures can be custom-designed before your procedure, then placed the same day that your teeth are extracted. With an immediate denture, you can avoid having to wait to rebuild your smile and regain your mouth’s full function.
Are You a Candidate for Tooth Extraction?
A neglected infection, a non-functional tooth, or problems with your teeth’s supportive structures will only worsen when ignored, threatening the surrounding teeth. By removing one tooth and replacing it with a dental implant and crown (or other appropriate prosthetic), you can protect your smile more effectively in the long-term.
Sedation Dentistry for Nervous Patients
For patients who are anxious about tooth extraction, or who require a complex procedure, an anesthesiologist may be present to administer an appropriate form of sedation dentistry. Depending on your needs and preferences, sedation may include nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral conscious sedation, or IV (intravenous) sedation.
