Dental Extractions

In this day of dental implants the method of tooth removal has become more critical to planning for potential future implant placement.   Difficult tooth extractions were typically accomplished in the past by removing a wide zone of bone to just tip the tooth out the side of the socket.   However that would often result in inordinate bone destruction and loss such that in order to place a dental implant in the future, significant bone grafting would be required at much more expense.  In light of this consideration, we try to remove all teeth "through the tooth socket" and when bone removal is required, it is kept to a minimum in consideration of potential future dental implant placement.
