Tooth pain is always a sign that something isn’t right and, though we always try to preserve natural teeth first, pain may signify the need for their removal. If a tooth is badly decayed, has suffered trauma, or is impacted (such as in the case of wisdom teeth), removing it is often the best choice for sustaining your oral health long-term. Tooth extractions might sound uncomfortable, but we are skilled in advanced procedures that minimize your discomfort, both during and after treatment. If we cannot save your tooth with conservative methods, we can extract the problem tooth comfortably and safely at our Glen Ellyn, IL office. If you are experiencing chronic or acute tooth pain, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Drs. Thomas or Jessica Gibbs. Timely tooth extractions help ensure the maintenance of good oral health by keeping your mouth free from pain, disease, or decay.
While wisdom teeth do not require tooth replacement, we commonly recommend replacing other teeth that have been extracted. Tooth extractions not only remove the problem tooth but leave an empty socket and a gap that if not filled can cause other teeth to shift and bone to be lost. Restoring this area with a dental implant is the most conservative and long-lasting option you can choose. Once in place and integrated with your jaw bone, dental implants provide nearly 100 percent of the functional and health benefits afforded by natural teeth. Best of all, our skilled team is highly experienced in restorative dentistry and crafts beautiful new teeth to blend seamlessly with your existing smile. From start to finish, we can help you eliminate your tooth pain, remove your problem tooth, and provide you with an aesthetic and functional replacement—all conveniently at our Glen Ellyn, IL practice. Don’t let tooth pain stop you from smiling. Seek our experienced care today.
