When a tooth is damaged so severely that it can’t be repaired by regular means, or you’re missing a tooth already, extractions and implants can help. But these procedures can only be performed by specialists.
At City of Oaks Dental, Dr. Throop is able to handle all your dental needs, from check-up to surgical procedures. There’s no need to be self-conscious about your smile or deal with the pain of a damaged tooth.
Extractions and implants are a regular part of the daily schedule at dental offices around the world. They’re commonly performed and affordable treatments when a tooth is so far gone it can’t be fixed.
Even though they’re quite common and safe, it’s understandable to have a lot of questions and concerns before you agree to a procedure. That’s why a consultation is usually the first step in the process.
If a tooth extraction or implant is something you’re thinking about doing, a consultation can give you the answers you need to make your decision. There are a few things to consider, depending on your situation.
During a consultation, Dr. Throop will give you an overview of the problem you have and its potential consequences. Something that seems simple and inconsequential could have major dangers down the road if it’s not taken care of. This is frequently seen when infection is setting in or could occur.
Based on your dental health, a procedure will be recommended and the pros and cons will be addressed. These include factors like:
An extraction or implant isn't typically done on the first visit. There is a lot of medical background that has to be addressed before the surgery is done. Emergencies happen, and those are addressed on a case-by-case basis.
During your consultation appointment, you'll have the chance to get your questions answered. Before you leave, you and Dr. Throop will have a treatment plan in place to guide your next steps.
Our friendly staff will walk with you throughout the process, answering any questions you have. We can help you with your insurance concerns and guide you through the surgical procedure and aftercare.
When you’re dealing with a surgical procedure, you want someone you can trust taking care of you. Dr. Throop has the experience, knowledge, and compassion to handle your dental needs. Schedule an appointment today at City of Oaks Dental to see how we can help you.
