Parting with a Tooth: Preserving Your Holistic Oral Health

We understand that dental surgery and tooth extractions can feel like stepping into uncharted territory. But sometimes, parting with a tooth can greatly benefit your oral health. 

The Ivory team is committed to maintaining the health of your natural teeth while supporting your comfort. And if you’re feeling uneasy, we can enhance your experience with complimentary amenities or sedation services

Whether it’s a single extraction or wisdom teeth removal, book your appointment at The Ivory today.

Extraction Procedures

Dr. Sweeney can perform both simple extractions (for visible teeth that have erupted through the gums) and surgical extractions (for partially impacted or broken teeth trapped under the gums).

Let us guide you through this treatment journey, addressing your concerns, answering questions, and illuminating the road to recovery and radiant smiles.

Common Reasons for Tooth Extractions

Sometimes, a tooth may decide to be rebellious, causing discomfort, pain, or even posing a threat to its neighbors. Here’s why you might need to part ways with a tooth:

  • Infection: A tooth infection can cause intense sensitivity, tenderness, a persistent bad taste, or uncomfortable swelling. Untreated, an abscess may form, or the infection may spread to other tissue. Parting with your tooth may become an essential solution to prevent further damage.
  • Crowding: Overcrowding can lead to teeth overlapping or impacted wisdom teeth, causing discomfort, infection, or misalignment. Extraction can provide much-needed space and relief.
  • Tooth Damage: Severely damaged teeth or cavities, like a coffee cup with a leaky crack, might need extraction if they cannot be mended with restorative treatments.

How Long Does Recovery Take After an Extraction?

It’s normal to feel some discomfort after a parting with a tooth, but don’t worry—we’re here to help. We’ll provide you with detailed instructions for a smooth recovery. 

While the recovery time varies depending on factors such as the type of extraction and your overall health, you can generally expect complete healing of the soft tissue within 3–4 weeks. We’re with you at every step of the recovery process to promote a successful outcome.

Alternatives to Tooth Extraction

We always consider alternative treatments before tooth extraction.

Our philosophy revolves around preserving your natural teeth whenever possible. If Dr. Sweeney determines that root canal therapy is an option, she can remove the affected tissue, preserving your tooth’s integrity. 

In cases where saving the tooth is not viable, Dr. Sweeney can transform your smile with a beautifully crafted, natural-looking restoration.

Replacing a
Missing Tooth

When a tooth bids farewell, filling its place to prevent potential complications is important. Every tooth plays a significant role in your smile and overall oral function.

Restorative dental procedures, such as dental implants or bridges, can help fill gaps and add strength to your bite. Dental implants offer a natural-looking and enduring solution, not only replacing the missing tooth but also preserving the jaw bone, preventing bone loss.
