Extractions

There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out as it should, and the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt. At other times, a tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth and jaw at risk of decay, so your doctor may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.

When it is determined that a tooth needs to be removed, your dentist may extract the tooth during a regular checkup or may schedule another visit for this procedure. The root of each tooth is encased within your jawbone in a “tooth socket,” and your tooth is held in that socket by a ligament. In order to extract a tooth, your dentist must expand the socket and separate the tooth from the ligament holding it in place. While this procedure is typically very quick, it is important to share with your doctor any concerns or preferences for sedation.

Once a tooth has been removed, neighboring teeth may shift, causing problems with chewing or with your jaw joint function. To avoid these complications, your dentist may recommend that you replace the extracted tooth.

I adore the staff over there, my daughter and my son go to the second floor means the whole group knows me. My dentist Dr Gilson and her assistant Jessica are the best ever and so funny. My hygienist Bonnie is hilarious and never let anything unnoticed. They are really professional, they make you feel welcome and they treat you as you would treat yourself. They always work with me with price and my insurance. I wouldn't change them for no where else.

Hi, My name is Barbara S. and I have been a patient at the Dental Care Group, with Dr Mars, for about 20 years. I'm a retired educator who wears many hats--real estate referral agent, substitute teacher, hospital volunteer, actor, and grandmother. I'm called the "happy lady" so it's important to me that my teeth look good. As I approach this new milestone of completing my Invisalign treatment, I am extremely satisfied with the process and outcome. Procrastination was a factor for years because I thought Invisalign at my age (65) would be a waste of time and money. Ironically, when I started my last set, casting call for commercials increased. Now, when the camera person asked for that big smile, I gladly show all 28 beautiful teeth. Hats off to my dentist, Dr Mars, for his expert skills, professionalism, caring heart, and contagious sense of humor. When it comes to giving back to the community, Dr. Mars should receive the Humanitarian Award for opening his heart and providing his professional services to the public. The deco style waiting room, with the added computer, is warm and inviting. The entire staff has always maintained exceptional professional ethics. It is true that the company's success is, also, determined by the staff that customers initially encounter. All of the office staff exemplifies that pleasant and helpful spirit and is an asset to the Dental Care Group. Special thanks to my special team of helpers, Valrie, April, Anel and Marlene who always made me feel so special. Thanks, again to Dr Mars and the staff at The Dental Care Group. Much love.
