Protect Your Smile With Tooth Removal

 

If you have a damaged or diseased tooth, or if you need teeth removed for another reason, the team at Gregg D. Bobier, DMD can help you. Over the years, Dr. Bobier has removed countless teeth for his patients. Like this procedure has done for others, our tooth removal can help you:

 

 

If you need one or more teeth removed, give us a call today at 248-656-8880 (Rochester) or 248-625-4492 (Clarkston) to schedule an appointment. You can always choose IV sedation if you’re nervous about your procedure.

 

Get Your Oral Health Back on Track With a Tooth Extraction

 

As an oral surgeon, Dr. Bobier specializes in all types of surgical procedures affecting the mouth. A tooth extraction falls into that category. When your teeth need removal, you want the services of a trained specialist. That’s exactly what you’ll get at Gregg D. Bobier, DMD. Dr. Bobier has been in practice for over 20 years, so you can feel good about your decision to trust him with your smile.

 

When you come in for your tooth extraction, our staff will make sure you’re fully informed about your procedure. If you have any questions, they will be sure to answer them before any work is done. We treat only one patient at a time, so you’ll never feel hurried through our practice. We’ll go at a pace that you’re comfortable with.

 

We’ll make sure your mouth is fully numb first so that you don’t feel anything. If you like, we can also administer IV sedation to put you in a sleeplike state. You won’t experience any of the sensations of your procedure, and you won’t remember anything about it afterward. Your visit with us will be completely comfortable.

 

The best way to replace your tooth is with a dental implant. It is a small titanium post that Dr. Bobier can insert into your jaw where your tooth was. After a few months, it will have integrated with your bone and will serve as an artificial tooth root.

 

If you’ve had a single tooth removed, your dentist can then attach a new crown to the top of the implant to give you a replacement tooth. You’ll have a beautiful, natural-looking smile once again, and virtually all your biting and chewing capacity will be restored. For multiple extractions, you can get an implant-supported bridge or implant-secured dentures to fill in your smile.

 

If you have an aching tooth, don’t stay in misery! Call Gregg D. Bobier, DMD today at 248-656-8880 (Rochester) or 248-625-4492 (Clarkston) to schedule an appointment for tooth removal in Rochester.

 

Common Questions About Tooth Removal / Extractions

 

How much does a tooth extraction cost?

Even for a routine procedure like a tooth extraction, it is difficult to quote a price without first seeing you in our office. During your initial visit, we’ll examine your mouth and take a set of X-rays to develop a plan for removing your tooth or teeth. Once we have more specific details, we can give you an accurate cost for your tooth removal.

 

How long does it take a tooth extraction to heal?

In most cases, you can expect your extraction site to heal fully within approximately seven to 10 days. Your healing will depend partly on how well you follow the aftercare instructions we’ll give you. If you’re careful about what you eat and drink and avoid vigorous exercise for a few days, your healing time will be quicker and more comfortable.

 

Does a tooth extraction hurt?

Rest assured that your comfort is a high priority for us. We’ll do all we can to make sure that your extraction is as comfortable as possible. We’ll thoroughly numb the area around the tooth before doing any work. If you’re nervous about your procedure, you can always opt for IV sedation to put you in a sleeplike state while we take care of your extraction.

 

What is dry socket after tooth extraction?

Dry socket happens if the blood clot that forms after your tooth is removed is dislodged or dissolves. This exposes your nerves and bone to food and air, creating intense discomfort. You'll lessen your chances of experiencing dry socket if you follow our instructions for post-extraction care, such as avoiding rinsing and spitting at first, not using a straw, or eating soft foods for a few days.
