Tooth Extractions Provide Relief - and New Possibilities
End Tooth Pain at
Tooth pain can make the most essential of daily activities—eating, speaking, and even sleeping—an ongoing challenge. Sometimes tooth pain indicates a cavity that can be filled and may never again cause you any discomfort. In some instances, however, tooth pain can point to severe infection or disease. Dr. Curry Leavitt always first takes the conservative approach of trying to save a natural tooth. However, there are some cases for which his only possible course of action is to remove the problem tooth. When tooth extractions do become necessary, you want them handled by a highly trained professional who will do the job correctly and with as little pain as possible. Dr. Leavitt has multiple qualifications that make him the ideal choice.
Gentle Tooth Extractions from Highly Skilled Hands
Certified to administer IV sedation, Dr. Leavitt can reliably manage any pain you might experience during your tooth extraction. Though every type of sedation or anesthesia offers some relief from pain and dental anxiety, IV sedation has a few added benefits. It offers powerful pain management and puts you into a mental state similar to unconsciousness, though you are technically conscious and can interact with the doctor. While performing the extraction, Dr. Leavitt treats the area with great care so as to only affect the tooth or teeth that need to be removed. A dual-certified periodontist, Dr. Leavitt is specially trained in preserving the supporting structures of your teeth—the surrounding gums and bone. No one can remove your tooth more comfortably or with greater expertise. After the procedure, you won’t remember anything that happened due to the IV sedation. Dr. Leavitt will give you take-home instructions on how to ensure healing and will also recommend the best replacement for missing teeth—dental implants.
Dental Implants Restore Your Smile
While tooth extraction will generally put an end to your tooth pain, dental implants will restore what you’ve lost. Extraction should only be a means to that end, not the end goal itself; it’s the beginning of new possibilities. When you replace missing or decayed teeth with implants, you’re actually upgrading your life with new self-confidence, a beautifully restored smile, a more appetizing diet, and smoother speech. When you leave a gap you not only spoil your smile, you can cause surrounding teeth to shift and grow crooked because they no longer have the support that the missing tooth provided. What’s more, tooth roots and normal chewing activity keep your jawbone healthy. The bone underneath a gap in your smile is prone to decay without a tooth root anchored in it. A healthy, functional, and attractive mouth has a full set of teeth. Dental implants provide a permanent, durable, natural looking solution to missing teeth. As an accomplished periodontist, Dr. Leavitt has helped countless patients regain a full smile with implants!
