Extractions, Dentures, & Partial Dentures

A dental extraction is the procedure to remove a tooth from your mouth. A dental extraction is most commonly required if one of your teeth is damaged beyond practical repair. The most common reasons for tooth extractions include:
 

  • Severe tooth decay or infection may make it impossible or too costly to repair a tooth
  • Advanced gum disease may require a tooth to be pulled so it doesn’t affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of your mouth
  • A tooth may be extracted if it is blocking other teeth from coming in
  • During orthodontic work, teeth may need to be extracted to create room for the teeth that are being moved into place
  • Wisdom teeth are often extracted either before or after they come in


What to Expect
Dr. Montoya will first administer anesthetic to numb the area and reduce discomfort. During the extraction, you will feel the pressure of the tooth being removed, but will not feel any pain. Typically, the dentist is able to remove your tooth within a matter of minutes.

Immediately after the tooth extraction, a small amount of bleeding is normal and patch of gauze will be placed in the affected area. The area may bleed minimally for the next 24 hours or so and taper off after that. Follow Dr. Montoya's instructions on how often to change the gauze, and what other post-procedure steps to follow.

 
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Implants can be used to secure loose dentures. Dentures placed on the lower jaw often move around and are uncomfortable. Placing just 2 to 4 implants, will allow the denture to literally be snapped into place. This will allow you to chew much better and never have to worry about the denture moving or falling out at an inopportune time. Please view the video below to better visualize how implants can help secure a denture.
 

 
Saving even a few natural teeth is better than losing all of them.
