Extractions and Oral Surgery
Unfortunately, not all teeth can be saved despite our best efforts. At this point in time, it may become necessary to extract or pull a tooth. Though this is a last resort, Dr. Millsaps does his best to make it as easy on his patients as possible. This procedure essentially involves loosening the tooth by detaching the tooth from the bone surrounding it and then removing the tooth itself. Oral surgery is never fully predictable, but we try to minimize any unforeseen circumstances to the procedure by following proper techniques and using excellent tools and equipment to accomplish the extraction.
Once a tooth is extracted, there are several options available to replace the missing tooth or teeth, including partials, dentures, bridges, and implants.
