While we strive to preserve the natural teeth whenever possible, there are times when a tooth extraction is the best option for the overall health and function of the smile.
Dr. Amy Marckese-Braun performs most tooth extractions in the convenience of her Indianapolis dental office. When necessary, we refer patients to an oral surgeon or periodontist for tooth extractions.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
One of the most common tooth extractions we perform is wisdom teeth removal. The wisdom teeth (third molars) typically emerge in the late teen-age years to early twenties.
Wisdom tooth extraction is usually recommended to alleviate pain and to maintain the proper position of the other teeth. Wisdom teeth can cause damage to neighboring teeth as they emerge and, in some cases, become impacted.
Dr. Marckese-Braun also offers dental implants for missing teeth or teeth that need to be removed. Dental implants are the best long term, natural looking solution for missing teeth. In most cases, the tooth can be extracted and the dental implant placed on the same day.
