At Mountain View Dentistry, our philosophy is to assist you to maintain your natural teeth for a lifetime. Unfortunately, there are scenarios in which an extraction is either the best clinical option or an alternative to a root canal. Our team is well equipped to guide you through the extraction in a calm and stress-free manner.
When a tooth is removed the bone and gums shrink and becomes more difficult for an implant to be placed or for a partial denture to fit well in the future. If you are thinking about a tooth replacement option in the future, it might be a good idea to preserve the ridge where your tooth was removed. We offer bone grafting to preserve your bone so you are not limited to options in the future.
Wisdom teeth or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt typically between the ages of 18 and 25. Wisdom teeth are normally recommended to be removed because they often erupt in a way that cannot be kept clean or in a way that causes discomfort. Dr. Annis works closely with some of the best oral surgeons that can comfortably remove wisdom teeth.
