Tooth Extractions An Overview
Sometimes a tooth extraction is a necessary part of restoring the health and function of your natural smile. The safety and comfort of our patients are important to Dr. Mahnke and our dental care team at Bay City Smiles, so we take the proper steps to ensure patients are well informed, safe, and relaxed during their treatment.
Dr. Mahnke performs tooth extractions in the convenience of his Bay City, MI dental office. Reasons for tooth extraction might include:
- Severely damaged teeth
- Teeth impacted by gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Wisdom teeth
- Baby teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
It is important to find the right tooth replacement option after a tooth extraction. Missing teeth can lead to a further deterioration of other teeth due to shifting and tipping of the teeth that remain. As a highly trained general and family dentist, Dr. Mahnke also offers a range of natural looking replacement options for extracted teeth to stabilize your remaining teeth. Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Mahnke may suggest the use of a dental implant, dentures, or dental bridge to restore your smile after a tooth extraction. Each tooth replacement option offers its own list of benefits; Dr. Mahnke will work with your to determine which solution is right for your smile.
