Extractions

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 our dentists at Silverado Dental Care 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, our dental team may extract the tooth during a regular checkup or may request 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, our dentists 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 our team 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, our dentists may recommend that you replace the extracted tooth.

Morgan

"My husband and I have been going here for years. Not only is everyone amazing but they truly care about your well being before, during and after procedures. God bless ANY dentist that will answer his own phone on a weekend. Dr. Ringard just helped me at 10am on a Saturday morning. I'd recommend them to anyone!"

Carrie

"I have been searching and searching for the perfect dentist office. It is much like trying to find a decent boyfriend. At first they are sweet are lure you in, but then all of a sudden they turn on you and you can't trust them anymore. Well...Silverado Dental Care is like the prince charming of dental care in Napa.
The team here is so wonderful and warm, from the moment I walked into the office I fell in love. I highly recommend Silverado Dental Care, and will never leave their trusting side.
They fixed a cracked veneer, cleaned, and polished my pearly whites all while I sit comfortably in a tempur-pedic chair watching Planet Earth.
Much like the rest of the population, I do not like going to the dentist; but do not fear!! Silverado Dental Care is here!"
