Tooth Extraction Boise ID

Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview

A tooth extraction may need to be performed for a vast number of reasons. In most cases, a tooth extraction is performed on excessively damaged, decayed, impacted or compromised teeth. The goal of the tooth extraction is to restore health to the natural smile.

Dr. Dennis Garpetti and Dr. Brock Hyder perform routine tooth extractions in our comfortable Boise, ID dental office. Dr. Gapetti has undergone advanced training in oral surgery and IV sedation to provide patients with the most comfortable treatment as possible.

We also a full range of wisdom teeth removal, tooth extractions, and tooth replacement options for patients of all ages. To ensure our patients are comfortable and safe throughout their procedure, we offer a full range of sedation dentistry solutions that are tailored to meet your dental needs.

Why Is A Tooth Extraction Performed

As noted, a tooth extraction is performed for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common are:

  • Severe Tooth Decay: In advanced cases of tooth decay, a tooth extraction may be the only form of treatment. If the tooth cannot be saved, we will perform a tooth extraction. We offer a complete range of tooth replacement solutions to help stabilize your smile.
  • Overcrowding: Overcrowding can lead to a misaligned bite, crooked teeth, and jaw pain. Extracting overcrowded teeth bring much-needed relief and improve the overall function and quality of your natural smile.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: In most cases, wisdom teeth will need to be removed if they are impacted, prone to infection, or if they lead to overcrowding. Impacted wisdom teeth can have detrimental effects on your oral health. Drs. Garpetti and Hyder offer wisdom teeth removal in our Boise, ID dentist office.
  • Periodontal Disease: For patients with an advanced form of gum disease, the function and health of the teeth may be compromised.

Tooth Extractions What to Expect

A tooth extraction can typically be performed in one visit to our Boise dental practice. Your dentist will work with you to create a comfortable, relaxing environment for your procedure. Your dentist will discuss your sedation options prior to your visit.

Your dentist will carefully remove the affected teeth, thoroughly clean the extraction site, and suture it shut. Your dentist will provide any post-op instructions to ensure you recover properly.

Replacing Extracted Teeth

Wisdom teeth do not need to be replaced. Depending on the location and the number of extracted teeth, we may recommend patients find a tooth replacement.

In most cases, we suggest patients replace missing teeth with dental implants because they offer the most natural look, long-lasting solution. Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural tooth root and can be used to support a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge. We perform all aspects of the dental implant procedure in our Boise dental office.
