Tooth Extractions Offer Relief—and an Opportunity

Infected, damaged teeth can cause pain so severe that eating, drinking, and even sleeping become a challenge. Although we always recommend saving natural teeth, if a tooth is beyond saving, we advise removal to prevent ongoing pain and infection. Left in place, a sick tooth can compromise the surrounding teeth, bone, and gums and cause lasting pain. Our Oral & Maxillofacial surgeons are considered the specialists of tooth removal.

With expertise developed through years of additional training after dental school, oral surgeons are prepared for any eventuality. We welcome patients with pre-existing conditions and frequently take cases others turn away. We offer the comprehensive services patient need during and after a tooth extraction. We routinely use specific bone grafting techniques to ensure you have the opportunity for a dental implant in the future. In some cases we are able to place an implant immediately after removing your tooth. In just one day we can remove the source of your pain and provide a plan for replacement. If you are looking for a trusted doctor for your tooth removal in La Crosse & Onalaska, Wisconsin then call Coulee Region Implant & Oral Surgery today.

Our Tooth Extraction Process

Tooth extractions are performed every week, if not every day, at Coulee Region Implant & Oral Surgery Center in La Crosse & Onalaska, WI. As a result, we’ve refined our process keeping your comfort as our top priority. When you arrive, we’ll show you to your private surgical suite before administering the anesthesia services previously discussed in your consultation. You’ll quickly feel relaxed and will have no pain during your procedure. Depending on the level of sedation you receive, the most you’ll feel is minor pressure as we remove your tooth. If you have an impacted tooth, more extensive work may be required to gain access to your tooth and detach its roots. However, each step of this process will be explained to you in detail before treatment begins. Recovery periods typically last a few days during which time we may prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort. We’ll review post-extraction directions in-depth in order to avoid complications like dry socket and ensure a swift and easy recovery!

Make Way for an Upgrade

Your tooth extraction shouldn’t be the last stage of your treatment. With the exception of wisdom teeth, we frequently recommend replacing extracted teeth with dental implants. The only permanent tooth replacement, dental implants look and act just like natural teeth due to their similar structure—post (tooth root) and restoration (tooth crown). The dental implant post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to take the place of your extracted tooth root and includes the added benefit of stimulating healthy bone growth. Once this post has integrated fully with the bone, a custom dental crown is permanently attached using an abutment (connector piece). Your family dentist will then provide the crown or restoration on the implant. This assembly will look and function like a natural tooth. Receiving care from a surgical specialist with expert training in dental implants is your first choice in replacing a missing tooth.
