Tooth Extraction To Help Protect Your Smile

When you have teeth loosened by gum disease, or if we need to prepare your smile for tooth replacement, we may need to extract one or more of your teeth. Our team will take time to help you enjoy a comfortable and positive office experience, and aid in the replacement of the extracted tooth. Our team of talented periodontic experts in Geneva and Fairport, NY, can offer a safe and gentle tooth extraction.

When Teeth Need to Be Extracted

When does a tooth need to be removed? We recommend extraction when a crown or other restoration can no longer be used to treat the tooth, as otherwise the infection can spread to other parts of your smile. We can remove severely damaged, decayed, or infected teeth, and take out ones loosened by gum disease or to even make room for orthodontic care. Removal could be used to improve overall bite balance, or to take out wisdom teeth before they are impacted. We could even remove teeth to make room for a prosthetic, such as a bridge or even a full or partial set of dentures.

Ensuring a Comfortable Experience

We want your tooth extraction to be a comfortable visit, which is why we will talk about what to expect and administer a local numbing agent to the tooth being removed. We can also choose a sedation option to help you enter a state of calm and relaxation, with little to no memory of the procedure. We can recommend an option based on the severity of the treatment and your anxiety levels, among other factors. Your office experience should be a positive one, and we want to ensure it is!

Dental Implant Placement

Our team can administer treatment to manage your periodontal disease, so that the factors behind your tooth loss don’t also impact your dental implants or implant dentures. Once we do, we will insert the dental implant posts at specific angles, positions, and depths to ensure they can support new teeth and also prevent the breakdown of jaw structure, so your new teeth can last for decades to come, possibly a lifetime. We then guide them into place with oral surgery. For some, we could attach a denture in the same visit so you leave with a full smile, while others may need to wait for the placement area to heal.

If you have any questions about tooth extraction, dental implants, or gum disease, then contact our team today to learn more.


We know that sometimes in the process of treating gum disease and placing dental implants, tooth extraction is necessary. Give us a call at our Fairport, NY office at 585.223.6040 to learn more.
