Tooth Extractions

Put an End to Chronic Tooth Pain

Restore Comfort with Tooth Extractions

A toothache is almost always due to infection of the tooth or a related condition like gum disease. Teeth that are too damaged or diseased to be repaired with conservative measures may need to be extracted. While losing a natural tooth is never ideal, it is often the best way to preserve the health of your mouth. If you have been living with chronic tooth pain, seeking the expertise of our periodontists, Dr. John Darby and Dr. Timothy Johnson, can provide you with relief. Tooth extractions in Ocala and Crystal River, FL are one of our most common procedures, and we’re skilled in providing treatment that is comfortable and efficient. If a tooth extraction is needed, we offer ridge augmentation and dental implants to preserve your oral health long-term.

Restore Your Smile After Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions naturally leave an empty tooth socket behind, which can affect the health of your jawbone and remaining teeth. Especially if more than one tooth is removed, we often recommend taking measures to preserve your jaw or replace your teeth to ensure long-term dental function. Ridge augmentation (sometimes called socket preservation) fills in the defects left after tooth extractions with bone grafting material to ensure a slower resorption process. Our advanced healing techniques also accelerate your recovery and the regeneration of new bone and soft tissue at the treatment site. Advanced healing techniques help the surgical site heal quickly and with less risk for infection. They also provide the ideal environment for placing dental implants. 

They also provide the ideal environment for placing dental implants. If you don’t qualify for immediate placement of implants after tooth extractions, our advanced bone grafting services can ensure you can receive dental implants after a much shorter recovery. Dental implants restore all parts of your teeth, from the root to the crown. By replacing extracted teeth with dental implants, you can enjoy a restored level of dental function and comfort as well as restored smile aesthetics. Even if you need tooth extractions, we have the solutions you need to once again feel confident in your smile!
