An extraction involves removing one or more teeth. Depending on their condition, this may require sectioning the teeth or trimming the gum or bone tissue. If any unexpected difficulties occur during treatment, Dr. Karl Schneck and Dr. Victoria Nguyen may refer you to an oral surgeon, who is a specialist in dental surgery.
Once the tooth is extracted, you will have a space that you may want to fill with a fixed or removable appliance. Replacement of missing teeth may be necessary to prevent the drifting of adjacent and/or opposing teeth to maintain function, or for cosmetic appearances. The options of a fixed or removable appliance are implant and crown, partial, bridge, or stayplate. (See Missing Teeth for options).
