Tooth Extractions

The goal at Mason Periodontics & Dental Implants is to help patients maintain a healthy mouth and keep their teeth throughout their lifetime. In many cases, we are able to perform specialized treatments to save or repair your teeth. However, sometimes it is recommended that a tooth be extracted because it has a poor long-term prognosis or life-expectancy. Some reasons a tooth may need to be extracted include: 

  • Severe decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Malpositioned teeth
  • Infection or abscess
  • Orthodontic correction
  • Fractured teeth or roots
  • Impacted teeth

Before we extract a tooth, we perform a comprehensive examination and write-up a customized treatment plan for each individual patients which includes options to replace missing teeth. This treatment plan is also discussed in detail with your general dentist to make your treatment progress as seamless as possible. Dr. Mason ensures that your tooth is removed in a gentle manner that preserves the gum tissue and bone for future replacement.
