Bainbridge Tooth Extractions & Preservation

The term “extraction” can be a frightening one. When we hear this phrase, our minds tend to make connotations with other dangerous “extractions” – prisoners of war being extracted from a torture chamber, trapped workers being lifted out from a collapsed coal mine. The idea of extracting something is usually negative and frightening, but at Michelle A. Gifford DDS, PLLC we are here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be.

Individualizing Your Extraction Needs
Every rescue scenario is different. When a firefighter enters a burning building to rescue a civilian, he or she must come up with a distinct plan of extraction, depending on the layout of the house, the type of fire, the victim’s location, and the spread of the flame. Similarly, we know that everyone’s dental needs are distinct. You might require a single method of extraction or need a combination of a few methods. Whatever your requirement, we have you covered.
The three primary methods of extraction consist of:
- Extractions – Sometimes, it is important to remove one or more teeth in order to make room for the others, or to keep a tooth that is infected from spreading the pain and swelling to other teeth. In this scenario, a minor surgery can settle the discomfort once and for all.
- Oral Surgery – In addition to your actual teeth, sometimes the surrounding areas of your gums or underlying bone structure may be affected. During these situations, a small process of surgical techniques can repair your oral structure and lining, so that not just your teeth but your entire mouth is back to functioning optimally.
- Root Canals – Despite their reputation, root canals are not major, agonizing bouts of surgery, but designed to give you instant relief. By tackling the nerve sending excruciating pain signals to your brain, and by filling dangerous infected teeth with sealer, Dr. Gifford can provide you with the comfort and release of pain you’ve been craving.
