One of the most common oral surgery procedures is tooth extraction. This involves removing a damaged or infected tooth that cannot be saved with other treatments such as fillings, crowns or root canals.

Regular Tooth Extractions Vs. Surgical Extractions

Not many are aware that there are two types of tooth extractions: regular and surgical.

  • Regular Extractions. These are performed on teeth that are easily seen and accessed in the mouth. The tooth is loosened with an elevator tool and then removed with forceps.
  • Surgical Extractions. These are more complex procedures that involve removing teeth that are either broken, impacted or difficult to access in the mouth. It may require an incision in the gum tissue and sometimes even sectioning the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.

For regular extractions, we typically use local anesthesia to numb the area and ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. However, for more complex surgical extractions, we may also offer sedation to help you relax during the procedure. This is especially helpful for patients with dental anxiety or fear. In this case, it’s important to have someone drive you home after the procedure, as you may still feel drowsy from the sedation.

At Blossom Dental Excellence, we have the expertise and experience to perform both regular and surgical tooth extractions with precision and compassionate care.

A single tooth implant is a surgical procedure that involves replacing a missing tooth with a titanium post and replacement tooth. This is an ideal option for those who have lost a single tooth due to injury, decay or other reasons. The implant acts as a replacement root, providing stability and support for the new crown.

All-On-4 Implants

All-On-4 implants are a popular and effective option for those who have lost or most teeth. This procedure involves placing four dental implants in the jawbone to support a full arch of replacement teeth. The implants fuse with the bone over time, providing a stable base for the dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implants

For both single tooth and all-on-4 implants, there are several benefits compared to other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges:

  • Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.
  • They are more durable with longer lifespans, lasting more than 25 years or more with comprehensive care.
  • There is no need for special cleaning or maintenance.
  • They help preserve the jawbone and prevent bone loss.
  • They do not affect speech or eating capabilities.
  • They can improve confidence and self-esteem by restoring a full, healthy smile.
  • They do not damage adjacent teeth like bridges can.
  • They are a permanent solution, unlike dentures that need to be replaced periodically.

What Is the Cost of Dental Implants?

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the type of implant, the location of missing teeth and any additional procedures that may be needed. Your dentist will give a more accurate estimate after they examine your mouth and discuss your treatment options.

At Blossom Dental Excellence, dental implant costs range from $900 to $2,100 per tooth. Like our other treatments, we also accept most dental insurance plans and offer flexible payment options and financing plans to help lessen the financial burden of your dental implants.

Are Dental Implants Painful?

Most patients report minimal discomfort during the dental implant procedure. We use local anesthesia to numb the area and make sure you are comfortable throughout the process. After the procedure, you may experience some soreness or swelling, but these can usually be managed with over-the-counter facial pain medication.
